Your 6.5 Minute Dumbbell Workout

Turns out that workouts don’t have to be super long to be super effective. High intensity intervals likeTabata training require intense effort for a short period of time and studies have shown that these quick but vigorous workouts provide all the health and fitness benefits of traditional endurance training [1] [2] [3][4]. All the fitness bennies in a fraction of the time? Not too shabby. We asked Greatist Expert Eugene “Bo” Babenko to come up with a super quick and  unbelievably simple workout that would challenge exercisers of all levels. Babenko designed a six-and-a-half-minute workout named after (and the same length as) the Eagles song “Hotel California.” If you’ve got seven minutes and a pair of dumbbells, this workout is for you. To up the intensity/challenge, just do the workout a few times in row. Bonus: Ditch the stopwatch and use Spotify to play “Hotel California” on repeat. Now you’ve got yourself a workout timer and a playlist. To read more click here!
