Cardio all day every day

Ah, yes, the classic college student dilemma: If we put off our studying to go work out, we might be too tired to properly study afterwards.

And let’s face it, sometimes we cannot even dig ourselves out of the avalanche of books and papers and empty Cheetos bags without some excavator of sorts, so forget crawling our tired butts to the gym!
