A Workout Fit for a Dorm Room

11 Jan

I’m usually disciplined when it comes to early morning workouts; there’s rarely a time when I skip because I’m being lazy. Other than listening to my body or taking a rest day, morning workouts are a routine-thing. There’s only one circumstance when I make all the excuses in the world not to go to the gym..rain.

The sound of rain hitting the pavement, the sloshing-around from cars’ tires, and the mere thought of walking in it gives me the chills. Over dramatic? Probably. Hey, that’s me. But instead of foregoing my workout all together, I turned my frown upside-down and decided to do my planned workout right in my room!

I live on campus at Oakland, in one of the apartments, so I have my own room and a pretty legit space.

While pinning last night, I came across a workout from You+Me=Fit that combined my two fave things, strength and cardio! I adapted it to fit the space I was working with and here’s what it looked like:

PicMonkey CollageIf you live in an actual dorm room, switch the stair running for sprints down the hallway (you’re prob. the only crazy up!) or high knees if your building doesn’t have stairs. Good thing my roommate wasn’t home, I think I live in the squeakiest apartment known-to-man.

CI did a presentation yesterday for an Honors Society group about the Benefits of Exercising and Eating Healthy on Campus; if you’re interested, check it out!

Have a great weekend!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one! I love doing workouts with no equipment for just this reason.
