Suggestions for HIIT exercises using the upper body?

I'd like to incorporate HIIT into my workout routine but I would like to focus on my arms, chest and back.

I run 4 miles ~4-5x per week. I love running but I would like to do something for my upper body because I'd like to get stronger and well, I have toned legs with spaghetti arms.
I'd like to replace a couple of my running days with about 20 minutes of HIIT. Traditionally I have used HIIT in the past by sprinting a half mile, walking one minute, repeat. I'd like to try something other than running that uses my upper body. Any suggestions?
(also - I HATE HATE HATE lifting weights, and am concerned that I would injure myself doing super fast repetitions. So, I hope to avoid weights but if people have had positive experiences then please share them!)
