As I’m sitting here writing this post, there’s actually a few crows outside in one of the trees. The sun is shining and it’s quite warmer outside than what it’s been lately. Along with the Spring look outside, the clocks went ahead today which only means good things; Summer and longer daylight hours!
I love everything about this time of the year. Not only does the longer days bring a constant smile to my face, but my motivation level also becomes extremely high this time of the year. Knowing that I’ll be heading to Cuba in a few weeks for another awesome vacation, but by the time I return home, Spring will be in full swing and the Summer countdown is on.
It’s truly time to bust some butt and get working towards looking good in those daisy dukes. Ever workout counts and this workout is the perfect place to begin for a serious burn!

Set your timer for 15 minutes.
Complete the following reps (per side of the body) for each of the following exercises; without any rest.
Continue working through the exercises until the 15 minute timer goes off.
20 RESISTANCE BAND GLUTE KICKBACKS (per leg)
4x (to the left) + 4x (to the right) SIDE STEPS & SQUAT
15 STANDING SHOULDER PRESSES
20 STANDING SIDE RAISES (palms in)

When it comes to the side steps & squats, I stepped to the same side 4 times, then performed another 4 reps back to the opposite side. This gives you a total of 8 reps; 4 per side.
When I did the shoulder presses I placed the resistance band behind my shoulders, this way the band wasn’t slapping me in the chest while pressing up. It it totally optional to do it this way, do what you find comfortable. 😉
