So little time, so much exercise to do!

Hey guys! As we enter the last month of the semester before summer, you want to have that bikini body but are swamped with projects, papers and exams. It's really important to not get caught up in a sleep, eat, study, work cycle - with study/work being replaced by projects, class, papers - to your own schedule, but make sure you put exercise in there. Not only does it help get your body in shape, but also exercises your mind with a break from the books.

When I say workout, it doesn't necessarily mean spending an hour in the gym, sweating on the treadmill and do crunches. Go for a half hour jog, jump rope, or even go to the stadium to run. When I need to get my mind clear, a nice run in Ben Hill, using the bleachers, ramps and stairs, gets your heart pumping with no weights needed. For that half hour or hour, your pulled into the energy that is always in The Swamp and you can almost feel the excitement of a saturday night football game.

But, if you don't have that time to spare or running isn't your thing, here's a quick video of basic strength training exercises you can do in your room in about 10 minutes. She goes through one circuit, but as you advance in your workouts, try to do 3 or 4 circuits each time. And just because your in your room, don't take it easy...blast the music and PUSH YOURSELF!

Put down the books! Take 15 minutes to let your brain stop burning while your muscles do!
