The Dorm Room Six-Pack Workout

Follow these tips to craft a killer midsection while in college.

Dorm Room Six-Pack

You can get a rock solid six-pack without ever leaving your dorm room. Of course I am not telling you to stay in your dorm room, go out and experience college. But you don’t need to spend all of your free time in the gym to get a six-pack. 

There are two aspects to a six-pack: fat and muscle. You need to have a low enough body fat percentage so that your abs are visible, and then you need actual abdominal muscles so that they pop out. Everyone talks about the freshman fifteen and how weight gain is basically guaranteed because of the food in the dining halls. But the truth is, the freshman fifteen does not come from the dining halls. It comes from your dorm room. 

All of the snacks (and booze) that you have in your dorm room are the main contributors to weight gain. The dining halls have enough healthy options to make it fairly easy for you to eat healthy, but your dorm room is a different story. If you walk into 99.9% of college student’s dorms, they have more unhealthy options than healthy options.

Dorm rooms are stocked with instant mac and cheese, pizza, chips, sour patch kids, mountain dew, alcohol, and a myriad of snacks that contribute to the freshman fifteen. It is these unhealthy foods that are eaten outside of the dining courts that put all the weight on college kids. 

Simply eliminating these foods will help cover the fat part of the two-part system to a six-pack. The other part, gaining abdominal muscles, can also be taken care of in the dorm room. And the best part, they can be taken care of in just two minutes a day!
