Fitness Friday: Stair Workout

Julianna Foster / Daily BruinWe UCLA students are no strangers to stairs, but have you ever thought about using them for a quick workout? One of the best things about stair workouts is that you can do them pretty much anywhere. In your dorm or apartment building, at the track and even on campus. They’re perfect for adding a little movement to your routine, and you can break them up into small segments that are spread throughout the day if you don’t have time for a full-on workout.

Basically, a stair workout is the perfect workout for finals week. You probably won’t have to leave your building, and you can pick how long you want to go for.

As UCLA students, we need to embrace being “so L.A.” Be proud of wearing flip flops every day, being excited to eat kale, and buying something with rhinestones from one of those overpriced doggy boutiques. Even if our lives aren’t actually as glamorous as we lead our Facebook friends to believe, we need to at least keep up the appearance of being “so L.A.” by doing quirky L.A. things. One such activity is attending FREE television tapings. These are a great way to see celebrities, be on TV, get a behind-the-scenes experience of a show, and possibly win some pretty cool prizes. The following shows are just a bus ride (or two) away from UCLA and guaranteed to make your Instagram followers jealous of your super cool life. (more…)

Microwaveable Meals: Breakfast in a Mug

Amy Giroux / Daily Bruin

It’s that time again. Finals week is upon us and with it comes junk food, microwave meals and an unspeakable amount of coffee that might as well be injected intravenously.

It’s no secret that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And let’s be real, this next week we’re going to need all the brainpower and cognitive function we can get.

In a week where putting effort into elaborate meals is next to impossible, here are a few ideas that are quick, healthy and fun to give you something that will make you look forward to waking up for that study grind. Another plus, no pans, spatulas or bowls to wash.

And if you’re hitting a wall in the evening, there’s always “Dessert in a mug” to save the day. Because calories don’t count during finals week. (more…)
