PPL, UL and what it all means

Have you ever gone to the gym and wondered, “What body part am I going to work today?”

Well, you’re definitely not the only one! Getting to the gym is the easy part — but figuring out what to do when you get there can be a lot more complicated. There are several ways you can train your body in the weight room throughout the week, and these are called “splits.”

What’s the best split for you? The two most common types are push, pull, legs (PPL) and upper, lower (UL).

Devils in Depth: Spring Break

Shaun, Data Analytics

I’ll be working over break at Target, and that’s about it. I love working there because it’s family-oriented and everybody knows each other. We’re all super-connected, and I just really like my coworkers! I’m a team captain of our e-commerce fulfilment team. It’s not the worst way to spend break!

Devils in Depth: Starting the Spring Semester



So, I actually normally go to the gym five times out of the week. I haven’t been able to get back on that schedule yet, I’m still trying to fit it in with my school schedule. I feel like I’ve been adjusting pretty well back to the homework. I’m normally on a pretty consistent work schedule, so fitting in school wasn’t too difficult.

Devils in Depth: Fitness routines

“Devils in Depth” is a project that gets down to earth and captures the diversity of Arizona State’s student population. We engage in conversations with students in an effort to learn more about their passions and get a feel for who they really are. Then, we ask them for their thoughts on a central theme.

AS(U) should try this too! My experience at Piladance

The Sun Devil Fitness Complex has a wide variety of group wellness classes. Some students may be afraid to try new things or may have never even heard of the wellness classes that ASU provides. That’s where I come in. I’m here to show everyone what these classes are all about by sharing my experience in hopes that it may encourage others to try the class as well.

This time I decided to try out the Piladance class. I didn’t know what to expect going into the class and I don’t mind doing some dancing. On any occasion, my go-to dances are hittin’ my folk or milly rocking like so.

College students struggle with eating healthy

College students today are having trouble eating healthy due to a lack of time and funds.

Oregon State University published a study in 2011, which revealed that college students are not consuming the recommended amount of fruits or vegetables.

President of the Student Nutrition Council on campus, Anateresa De Leon was able to speak on what barriers students face when trying to eat healthy.

“A lot of it is money and also we’re college students so, our priorities aren’t always great. A lot of times we want short term satisfaction versus long term.” De Leon said.

ASU and ATF celebrated their new partnership with a kickoff event

ASU staff, students and members of ATF formed teams for some friendly competition to demonstrate what this partnership is all about.
