The Butt and Shoulder Fat Blaster Workout can be done anywhere, anytime. All you need is a little bit of room, a little bit of time and a lot of heart. As always, it’s important to start with a good warm up. This workout gets progressively more challenging, and will primarily focus on your legs, shoulders and abs.

Equipment Needed:
1 hand-held weight between 4 and 10 pounds.

Note: Cardio intervals can be done anywhere, not just in the cardio room of a gym. They're also not restricted to treadmills. The purpose is to get in cardiovascular activity at varying levels.

Warm Up: 5 Minutes

If you’re at the gym, jump on a piece of cardio equipment. If you’re at home, start with some easy lunges, walk up and down the stairs a few times, or better yet…a five-minute walk or jog outside. For this workout, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to do a few windmills with your arms to loosen up your shoulders.
