Dorm Room Workout: Cardio Blast
Is it just me, or is this week crazy? Oh, just me? Awkward. Well, as college students, it’s inevitable that we’ll all have some weeks where everything is just a bit too much. Maybe it’s because you have three midterms and a paper due, or maybe it’s because you had a few too many margaritas…every night last weekend. (Who, me? No!)
So here’s your workout for the week when you have way too much work to get done and can’t even think about going to the gym. Try out this quick cardio blast to get in a good workout and relieve some stress.
1. High Knees
Run in place, but bring your knees as high up toward your chest as possible with every step. Continue for one minute.
2. Mountain Climbers
Drop down to a plank position on the floor, then jump your right foot in toward your hands, and switch feet. Continue for one minute.
Repeat this sequence, alternating one minute of high knees with one minute of mountain climbers, at least three times. You can do it!
