5 Easy Workouts You Can Do In A Dorm Room


Keeping up a fitness routine can be hard in college. You’ve got to juggle classes, clubs, and maybe even a job so adding fitness to that list just seems stressful. Plus, the calorie high pizzas and burgers located in the all you can eat dining halls don’t exactly help you stay healthy. With all the hard work you do in college, it can be hard to find the time to get the gym.

This is especially true, when heavy rain or snow makes a walk to the gym seem a lot less pleasant. Or your gym has weird hours and you can’t make it when it’s open. That, or maybe you do arrive  to the gym only to find out all your favorite cardio and weight machines are taken. The good news is, you don’t have to settle for no exercise in college if the gym just isn’t doing it for you.

Even when you’re cooped up in your dorm room, there are still plenty of ways you can sneak in a workout. Surprisingly, the college dorm doesn’t make as bad of a workout area as you might think. You can still get in plenty of cardio and core work in your bedroom. Here are 5 easy workouts you can do in a dorm room.
