Going from Halloween to Thanksgiving without feeling bloated is no easy feat, but we want to help. Halloween has come and gone and the holiday season (and even more eating) isÂ upon us. If Halloween candy left you with a little jiggle in your walk,Â Valley has some easy moves to get your fitness level back on track. Getting from Halloween past Thanksgiving is no easy feat, but we want to help.
On the ball
Traditional crunches are great to strengthen your core, but amp up your routineÂ by incorporating a workout ball. This gives your body a wider range of motion andÂ works more muscles in your core. Itâ€™s way more comfortable than laying on theÂ floor, too.
Be smart, use dumbbells
Goodbye, love handles. Dumbells are quick and easy â€“ keep them in your room or hitÂ up the mats after a cardio workout.
Hold a dumbbell straight down on the side of your body and lean to the side withÂ the weight. This will work those love handles off in no time.
Like a kid
Jump rope! Itâ€™s a great cardio workout and burns around 11 calories a minute. If youÂ jack up the intensity level it can burn up to 20 calories a minute.
White Building works
Remember that the White Building on campus offers great fitness classes everyday.Â Calorie Killer is a favorite among many and Washboard Abs is great if youâ€™reÂ running short on time (itâ€™s only 20 minutes!).
Spin a little
Cycling classes at the White Building are great for both beginners and advanced cyclists.Â Just remember to bring your own seat towel!
