Fitness trends come and go, but there are the rare few that will hit the mark and stay around for a long time. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a great example of a trend that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

HIIT workouts often involve short bouts of extreme effort alternated with periods of rest. The goal of a HIIT workout is to work as hard as possible for a short amount of time and the workout often doesn’t last more than 30 minutes. The best part about HIIT workouts is that they have lingering effects throughout the day.

Research on HIIT workouts suggests that they super-charge fat burning, boost metabolism, and improve cardiovascular fitness. It almost sounds too good to be true, right? Try it for yourself! This workout by Greatist targets your upper-body with minimal equipment needed. You’ll need a set of medium-weight CanDo® vinyl coated dumbbells (available for purchase from our network of dealers or directly from us) and your own body weight.
