You might assume that hot weather is all about baring abs and legs, but that excludes one of the best body parts to show off in the summer: sexy shoulders. Tone up those shoulders and you'll instantly feel more confident in tanks, tees, and those off-the-shoulder numbers that are soooo hot right now. The quick way to get those sexy, sculpted shoulders? This workout from Rebecca Kennedy, Nike Master trainer and Barry's Bootcamp instructor.

Grab a set of 5 to 8-lb. dumbbells (or 10s to 12s if you're feeling strong), then get after it. Transition from one move to the next with no rest in between to really feel the burn. (Want more? Try these 5 Sexy Shoulder Sculptors, too.)

Bent-Over Reverse Fly

Start by bending at the waist, holding dumbbells with palms facing in. Shift weight slightly into heels, engage lat muscles, and keep back straight. Raise arms to the sides and pull elbows back, keeping arms mostly straight, but careful not to lock elbows. Don't round your back or drop your shoulders.

Do 8 reps.

Lateral to Front Raise

Start standing with feet together. Raise straight arms out to the sides with palms facing down. Lower, then raise straight arms directly in front, palms still facing down. That's one rep. Be careful not to swing arms.

Do 8 reps.

Upright Row

Stand with arms relaxed in front, palms facing body. Leading with elbows, raise dumbbells along the front side of body up to shoulder height.

Do 8 reps.

Overhead Press with Triceps Extension

Start with dumbbells in racked position with palms facing in. Press overhead until arms are extended, wrists directly over shoulders. Then, keeping hands apart and elbows up, lower hands behind head. Squeeze triceps to straighten arms, then lower back to racked position. That's one rep.

Do 8 reps.

Complete the entire circuit three times, then slip on an off-the-shoulder top to show everyone how great it is when hard work pays off.
