Easy ways to workout at school, and no one will ever be the wiser!
Cram and Jam
Get fit while you’re stuck in class! You can pull of these calf-tightening moves while sitting in your chair – and nobody will ever notice. Cross your legs and point the toe of the leg that’s dangling, then trace the alphabet with your foot. When you’re done, point your heel at the floor and stretch toes back for 10 seconds or so. Switch legs, and repeat on the other side. Just don’t space out – the teacher might call on you!
Leg extensions in Latin
While sitting at your desk, extend your legs, one at a time, until they are completely straight. Hold for 30 to 60 seconds at a time, then slowly release back to the floor. If ya need to, keep your legs at an angle so they slide under the chair in front of you. For a serious burn, try 10 to 15 reps at a snail’s pace, using your abs to pull your legs up and lower them down.
Hip flexors in history
While sitting in your chair, lift your right foot a few inches off the ground. Keep your knee bent at a 90-degree angle and hold the position for a full minute. Lower, then do the same with your left foot. Repeat.
Toe raises in trig
You can do this while sitting or standing for a great calf stretch. With your heels on the ground, flex your toes up toward the ceiling. Hold for ten seconds, then release.
Late to class?
Get your cardio in and book it, babe! Jog up the stairs, pulling your knees up as high as you can. Or, speed walk down the halls. Consider the different muscle groups in your body and try to target them. For you calves, spring forward energetically off your heels when you take a step. For your bum, squeeze your glutes as you walk. For your abs, suck your belly in and stand tall as you weave through traffic.
