Start a Workout Routine Before Going Back to School

Fit Tip: Start a Routine Now Before You Go Back to School

The end of Summer can mean many things, including a fresh start as you head back to school. But whether you're dorm-bound for the first time or can't wait to get back to campus to see old friends, make the transition easy by establishing your workout routine now.

Starting an exercise routine before you go back to school can not only help you manage your time better, but you'll be more apt to stick to an established fitness regimen once your schedule goes from laying out by the poolside to scrambling from class to class. And figuring out now how much exercise you'd like to do in a week can help when you're trying to juggle school, friends, and hobbies as your semester obligations become more intense. Not sure how much you should pencil in for your workout? Aim for at least 150 minutes a week; here's a guide on how much you should exercise based on whether you want to lose weight, maintain weight, or just stay healthy and happy; if you're trying to lose weight, here's a beginner's weight loss workout to start.
