As a college student, you likely have a tight schedule, making it difficult to find time to work out. College is also the time when you need regular exercise to achieve a healthy lifestyle and get the most out of your college experience. Fitness is a journey, and like any journey, it’s essential to have a guide. The Press Gym has your back with the top workout routines for college students.

The Importance of Fitness in College Life

Your college years are critical to your mental development, and a good fitness routine aids that development. When college students implement a fitness routine, they can enjoy a range of benefits, such as:

  • Reduced stress
  • Enhanced mood
  • Improved concentration
  • Better sleep quality
  • Boosted physical health

Key Exercises

Here are some great workouts for college students to follow.

Strength Workouts

Strength training improves your muscle strength and tone, helping you to maintain flexibility and balance. If you are an athlete, this is especially important as it will reduce your chance of a career-altering injury. Engaging in strength training twice a week will give you the best results for building muscle.

Some great exercises for strength training include:

  • Chest presses
  • Leg presses
  • Shoulder presses
  • Resistance band training

Be sure to incorporate different strength-training exercises into your routine to work different muscle groups.

Cardio Workouts

Cardio is excellent for your overall health. Besides helping you stay in shape, it reduces fatigue, improves sleep and enhances your mental health, minimizing the effects of depression and anxiety. Cardio exercises increase your heart rate, which improves oxygen circulation and reduces the risk of heart disease, helping you lead a healthier life.

Most adults should try to get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity cardio or 75 minutes of high-intensity cardio per week. Popular cardio exercises include brisk walks, jogging, swimming and cycling. You can also use gym equipment to get your cardio workouts in. At The Press Gym, we have a range of cardio machines, such as:

  • Exercise bikes
  • Treadmills
  • Rowing machines
