With swimsuit season just around the corner and gorgeous weather to enjoy while you work out, it’s the perfect time to turn up the intensity. This trainer-created Workout of the Week is a 15-minute HIIT that will get your heart pumping and the sweat flowing. The only equipment you’ll need is a timer (grab an app for your phone unless you’ve got an old-school stopwatch sitting around). Grab a friend and push each other harder, or do it on your own when you have a few minutes to spare.
