Those who can relate know very well the stress of going to the school gym, which is almost always filled up to capacity with students throughout the day.

We know some of you are also agonizing over the fact that you have to pay to use the gym and are using it as an excuse to gain weight you know you really should be shedding.

So here are 10 simple exercises you can do in your rooms to achieve your body goals:

Skipping or jump rope

All you need is a skipping rope and your trainers and you’re good to go. Skipping is an effective cardio exercise and can serve as a warm up exercise. And how much does a rope cost anyway?

Jumping jacks

These may not be your favorite exercise to do but you don’t have to pretend to be Rocky and do it with one hand. You can modify it into a way that best suits you: either by doing it on your knees instead of doing it with your legs straight or by standing and doing it against a wall. This is a great exercise for building arm strength and building up muscles in the chest

Crunches
