Bodyweight Exercises to Try In Your Dorm Room
Living spaces and schedules can get pretty cramped these days. But that doesn’t make squeezing a couple exercises between furniture — or roommates! — impossible. Just under three hours per week of moderate-intensity exercise (the challenge level of a brisk walk) can help reduce heart disease, some cancers, and improve mental health and cognitive function. So in addition to power-walking to and from class, here are eight moves that'll really get you movin' — right in the comfort of your own home.
1. High Knees
How to: This could cause a riff with that cranky neighbor downstairs. But go ahead, we understand putting cardio before others’ quietude. Run in place, bringing the knees above hip level. Pro tip: Keep your hands in front of you at hip level, palms down, and try and slap ’em with your knees to get the most out of this one. Or, pump your arms like a sprinter, elbows at 90 degree angles, and pump those arms fast. (Your legs will always go as fast as your arms go!) Land on the balls of your feet (not your heels) for 10-second bursts, working up to 30-second sprints. Aim for 3-5 sets with 20 seconds of rest in between. fore more info visit this site (http://womenshealthprograms.inube.com/blog/3800917/joey-atlas-review-modern-leggings-that-melt-cellulite/)
2. Butt Kicks
Targets: Hamstrings, quads, glutes, calves, shins (tibialis), aaand heart rate
How to: Ready to kick things up a notch? Keep running in place, but this time kick your heels to your butt with each stride. Go as fast as you can for 3-5 rounds of 20-30 second bursts, 20 seconds of rest between each.
