Dorm Room Workout: No Squats Here

Recently, the American Council on Exercise conducted a study to determine which exercises are best for toning the glutes and hamstrings. Good old squats and lunges were high on the list, but the top exercise for hamstring and glutes was the quadruped hip extension. What's that, you ask? You're about to find out.

Dorm Room Workout: Get Fly Thighs

Yes, I know it’s the middle of winter. But that doesn’t mean you can’t dream of summer days, bikinis and short shorts!

Dorm Room Workout Series: Bringing Up the Rear

I just have to come right out and say it -- 2011 is the Year of the Rear. Sure, some ladies like J.Lo have always been known for their fantastic behinds, but this year everywhere you turn people are fawning over curvaceous ladies like Kim Kardashian and Beyonce. So I’ve put together a quick, simple exercise series that will tone, shape and add you to the list of perfect posteriors in no time.

Body Blog: Indoor Vs. Outdoor Running

Unless you consider yourself "a runner," (you know who you are) running can kind of suck. A lot. Sometimes it feels great to feel the wind through your hair and know that you left the equivalent of a 5K in the dust, no sweat.

WTF Friday: TP In The Bung Hole

Oh, this toilet paper 100% recycled? Well that's good! Yay earth! Because that is surely what I'm noticing as I'm pulling my TP out of some mystery man's butt. (Editor's Note: I never thought I'd see those words in a sentence on this site.)
