Take Your Workout Outdoors!

In preparation for swimsuit season, springtime is a great opportunity to bring your workout outdoors. Ditch the gym and follow these moves for a fun workout outdoors.

Playground Mountain Climbers
Find a jungle gym or playground ladder to move upward. You’ll work your core and upper body. Replace the Stairmaster with this workout.

Plyometric Incline Push-Ups
Instead of seated chest presses, find a step or bench to work your core, arms, and chest. Place your feet off and hands on the step. Lower yourself for a push up and push off the step with each rep. Try to come off the incline as high as you can.

Lateral Hops
Jump onto your nearest park basketball court! Moving sideways and facing forward, jump over and back, along the full court line. Repeat the action moving the other direction. Move both ways down the court twice.

Hill Sprints
Sprinting is a great way to quickly burn fat. Begin with jogging or walking to warm up. Complete 5 sets of sprinting 10 yards uphill with 15 seconds of rest in between. Time your sprints. Once your speed begins to decrease by 10%, discontinue sprints for the day.

Good luck with your pre-summer workout! Rover is already trying on speedos for the occasion.

Taxes are Due!

Here’s a deadline that’s not listed on your syllabus. Your taxes are due on April 15th! The Feds won’t let Rover do your taxes for you, but he does have some great advice for your taxing woes.

Have a clear idea of your dependency status. Avoid complications and discuss with your parents whether they plan to claim you or not. If you are not providing more than 50% of your own support, then you are not entitled to take your own personal exemption.

The American Opportunity Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit are available for students or those who claim students. Credits can be claimed up to $2,500 if you are an eligible taxpayer.

Know what you can deduct. The cost of job hunting, resume software, and textbooks are all deductibles.

And in case you don’t get the refund you were looking for, check RoverTown for discounts specially dug up for you!

P.S. – I’m not a CPA…I’m a dog. If I could, I would refund you in bones.
