Small Dorm Rooms Are No Match for These Fun and Effective Exercises ...


Staying fit at college doesn't have to be a challenge with these exercises for small dorm rooms.

You honestly don't need a large space to get a full body workout.

Even if you have the most hectic schedules, these exercises for small dorm rooms are simple, fast and effective.

Add these to all the walking you do on campus and you'll look and feel amazing.

1. Squats

One of the best exercises for small dorm rooms is squats.

Squats work your legs, butt, back and core.

Plus, you're not limited to one type of squat.

There are dozens to choose from.

If you're able to add in small dumbbells, even better as you'll also be able to work your arms.

I highly recommend watching a few squat workout videos on YouTube to find the right ones and ensure you're doing them correctly.

2. Planks

Think of planks as push-ups you hold.

Planks are great for stabilizing and tightening your core, strengthening your legs and building muscle in your arms.

As with squats, there are multiple types of planks.2

Start with the standard push-up pose and you'll quickly see just how effective they are.

You can hold them for different amounts of time to vary your workout.

3. Sit-Ups

Sit-ups are a classic exercise and they're simple to do.

All you need is something to slide your toes under to keep your heels on the floor and you're ready to go.

Try different types to really work your core.

Start simple if you're not used to sit-ups or you'll spend the next day feeling like you have the worst cramps ever.

Also, don't do these if you have any back problems.

4. Butt Kicks

If you're ready for some cardio, butt kicks are just the thing to get your heart rate up.

These work most of your lower body and will have your legs and butt burning.

Basically, you just run in place, but try to kick your heels up to your butt as you run.

It's more difficult than running in place.

Try it in circuits of running in place and then butt kicks.
