Dorm Room Workouts

Hi campus ladies!

Today's post includes some great exercises you can do from the comfort of your dorm room or apartment!

I like to do an exercise like this after 30 minutes of high intensity cardio, but it also stands great on it's own.

This first sequence is from Youtube personality BreeLovesBeauty in her collaboration with The Lean Machines (both channels are linked if you click on their names).

Beach body abs:
30 second plank
right arm down, side plank (30 seconds)
left arm down, side plank (30 seconds)
30 seconds of hill climbers
30 seconds of plank walkups

This next one I found online at tone-and-tighten.com:

At home arm workout:
pushups - 30 seconds on, 15 rest
chair dips - 50 seconds on, 15 rest
arm circles - 30 seconds forward, 30 seconds backwards, 50 seconds on, 15 rest
(repeat 3x)

Don't forget to stretch before and after. I recommend have a glass of water at your stretching times to make sure you keep hydrated.

Last tip is to go for a walk! Walking or hiking is a LISS workout (Low Intensity Steady State). A workout like this will boost your metabolism and leave you feeling great. 

Have a great weekend!
