The Shed-the-Sweater Workout

The Shed-the-Sweater Workout

The sun is slowly creeping back in! Prepare for lighter layers with this total-body conditioning workout from Shape!

It may not be bikini season just yet, but as the weather warms up, it's going to be time to start peeling off those winter layers! Don't wait till the last minute to start shaping up — get ready to shed your sweater with this targeted workout designed to help you hit all those special spots like that muffin top, those love handles, and the unsightly arm flab that may have been hiding under that sweater. (Thanks, winter weight gain!)

How it works: Do each exercise for the recommended number of reps with little no rest in between each move, repeating the full circuit up to 3 times in total depending on the amount of time and energy you have. Try this routine 3 to 4 non-consecutive days per week, alternating it with your favorite cardio activity. And of course, you'll want to pair this workout with a healthy diet for best body-shaping results.

You will need: A set of dumbbells (3 to 15 pounds, depending on level) and a mat
