A Simple, At-Home, Full-Body Workout To Get You Prepped For Summer

Not everyone wants to (or can) get to a gym to work out. And trust me, I totally get that. When I first started working out, I only felt comfortable enough to actually go to a gym once I had been working out for a decent time. So this article is for anyone that wants to get started on a fitness journey or is just in the mood for a little workout.

This specific workout is a full body and can successfully be done in a small dorm room, no equipment needed! Everyone workout will be shown below as well as a condensed list at the end which you can screenshot for future use!

I’ve listed a number of reps and each exercise is meant to be repeated 2 more times for a total of 3 sets (try not to take more than 30 seconds break in between sets!) and obviously all can be modified to your liking!

Also stretching before exercise is always recommended ;)

1. Arm circles

30 forward, 30 backward

Trust me, you feel it more than you’d think

2. Wall Sit

30 seconds

Splitting it into two 15 second increments is also an option, just don’t rest for too long in between! (no more than 5 seconds)

3. Jumping Jacks

20 reps

Hopefully, this will get your heart rate up a bit — if not, do more!

4. Push-ups

15 reps

If you’re like me and have little upper body strength, then you can totally do kneeling push-ups if you need to. Just make sure you get to 15!

5. Squats

20 reps

Get as low in the squat as you can while maintaining proper form

6. Inchworms

10 reps

Walking your hands forward and your feet back to your hands is only considered 1 rep FYI!

7. Reverse Crunches

10 reps

This move strengthens your core just as much as regular crunches, just without the strain on your neck

8. Lunges

10 reps each leg

You definitely get more out of these if you can do them in succession but not all of us have the space for that

9. Elbow Plank

30 seconds

Once again, if 30 seconds is a bit too long, you can always split this up into 15-second increments.

10. Hip Thrusters

15 reps

To get the most out of this exercise, you really need to keep your glutes and core tight.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
