Exercise in your Dorm Room!

Since most freshmen are required to live on campus during their first year of college, choice is often limited in what you can eat and what you can do for exercise.  SparkPeople has an article of great workouts you can do that are free to inexpensive, that you can do in your dorm room to engage in a healthier lifestyle.

Here are some highlights from the article:

A workout plan should consist of 3 things, Cardio, Strength Training and Stretching.

Cardio workouts get your heart pumping. Jogging in place, jump rope or just dancing all count as cardio.

Strength training options incorporate a wall, a chair, a towel and the floor. These things can be found in your dorm! Resistance workouts do not have to include traditional weights, as you can use your body in resistance training alone.

Stretching can be done with few dorm-room items and without. Your roommate may even be able to help you with your stretching routine!

Exercise is just as important as maintaining proper nutrition. You can still have a quality workout no matter where you are or your constraints on space.

What is your favorite exercise routine?
