Ok, so I’m a college student. Not only does that mean some interesting meals, lots of homework, napping at 6pm…but it also means living in the dorms. Which is a small space.
At first I didn’t know how I could manage doing workouts in a small space. I always dreaded the thought of going to the lifting room on campus (me lifting beside all the basketball and football players?! Yah, that’s a good one!). So I figured out a few ways to make my small space work.
- I got my own set of weights. I use them with my Pinterest workouts and it works out beautifully. I can stay in my own room and use my own tools that I have.
- Invest in a yoga mat. Yoga takes up no space at all and it really is a great workout (just YouTube some yoga videos and you’ll see).
- Do the Spartacus workout on YouTube. Seriously, I love this workout and it’s my go-to when I don’t want to go anywhere but I want to work on my whole body (even cardio!). It doesn’t take up any space at all and it’s quick.
- There are different ways to get your cardio in besides running (outside or on a campus track). Jumping jacks, burpees, mountain climbers, etc. There are tons of cardio exercises to do in your dorm.
So don’t be discouraged by a small space. Think of it as a good thing! This way you can stay in the comfort of your own space and still get a workout in!
