5 Min Study Break Workout to Stay on Track for Fitness Goals

With midterms and finals looming, finding time to #workout between all the studying and classes can be a challenge. But who says you have to choose between studying and working out? This study break exercise routine is all you need to stay on track for your #fitness goals, better yet it’s just 5 minutes long.

Just a small break can help refresh mental focus, improve circulation, and relieve tight and uncomfortable #muscles that can build up from inevitable bad posture while long hours spent sitting at a desk, looking at a computer, or reading books.

With this quick #routine, burn calories and get your heart rate going with minimal sweat involved. Plus, stay right on track with your #FitnessGoals through even your busiest seasons by stopping to move your body for at least 5 minutes once an hour.

How it Works
For every hour of studying take a 5 minute break to get up and move your body. This routine is filled with light cardio, bodyweight exercises, and dynamic stretches to wake your body up and prepare it for your next bout of studying. This routine may be short, but do it enough times throughout the day and the calories will add up!

Follow along with fitness trainer Sydney as she coaches you through this 5 minute routine, or check out the workout details below to remind yourself of the exercises.

#Exercise will remind you to love yourself, and motivate you to power through even the toughest of homework and study seshes. If you can get through a workout, you are strong enough to get through anything – including that chemistry final! Empower yourself with this quick 5 Minute Study Break Exercise Routine. I promise you won’t regret it.
