8 Bodyweight Exercises You Can Do Anywhere

Schedules aren't the only thing that get crowded. If you've got a roommate, space can be a pretty hot commodity.

But just because you're enjoying (surviving?) dorm life at college doesn't mean you can't make time for a workout. In fact, if you've got a stressful course load and packed schedule, working out might be?more important?now than ever. Just 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise (think: speed-walking) five days a week can reduce heart disease, improve mental health, and even help you do better on your next exam.
So in addition to sprinting to that 8:00 a.m. biology lecture, here are eight moves that will burn calories and spike your heart rate - in very little space.

The Workout
Complete each move for 30 seconds, with 10 seconds of rest between. At the end of all 8 moves, rest for 2 to 3 minutes. That's 1 circuit. Complete the entire circuit 3 to 5 times.

1. High Knees
2. Butt Kicks
3. Jump Squats
4. T Push-Ups
5. Mountain Climbers
6. Down Dog to Up Dog
7. Leg Lifts
8. Supermans
