We Tried It: 10 Minute Solution High Intensity Interval Training

Time at a premium? Each of the five workouts on “10 Minute Solution High Intensity Interval Training” are made for you then. Do one or two at a time or all five at once (show-off).

Oh, you think, how hard can 10 minutes be? Ha! Does the word tabata mean anything to you or your muscles? They don’t call this type of workout a HIIT for nothing.

Each workout — lead by trainer Lisa Kinder — has a quick warmup before you get into each exercise, which you do for 20 seconds before resting for 10. There are familiar moves — planks, burpees lunges — but with evil twists: a rotating plank, single leg burpee, lunge with a hop. Each cooldown is tailored to the workout you’ve just sweated through.

These short but fierce sessions really leave you panting. Trust me, you will know you’ve worked out.
