Shorts Season Shape Up!

2 Comments

  • Workout: Shorts Season Shape Up by Brit
  • Duration: 45 min – 1 hr
  • Calories burned: 350-500
  • Focus: LEGS – Glutes, Hamstrings, Quads, Calves

Commentary: It’s almost Summer – yeah buddy.  That means your thighs and booty are begging for public exposure, ha ha!  In all seriousness, I have an intense addiction to denim cut off shorts – pretty sure I wear them EVERY single day in this Texas heat.  That said, I do have to make sure to spend some extra time toning and tightening my leg muscles – specifically the booty, thighs and calves.  Here is a hardcore leg workout that I put together to help you tighten your tush and firm up your legs just in time for summer.  Do the workout 2-3 times per week for 4 weeks along with your moderate/high intensity cardio sessions and you should be ready to rock your booty shorts!    Enjoy 🙂

Instructions: This workout is a “super set”.  That means you will do each “SET” 3 times, then move on the to next set.  Between each set, jump rope or do jumping jacks for 1-2 minutes to keep your heart rate up!

Example: for Set 1, do the Squats then immediately do the Reverse Lunges.  Take a quick rest and then repeat 2 more times.  Once you have done the set 3 times, jump rope or do jumping jack s for 1-2 minutes.  Then move on to set 2.

  1. Brilliant workout! If you do it early in the morning like I did, your body is a bit more stiff (especially your legs!), so it is a good idea to warm up with at least 5-10 minutes of cardio. I also added some reverse back-extensions (pausing and tightening the glutes at the top) to really ‘seal the deal’ on my bootie! 🙂
