Because 5 minutes of exercise is better than no minutes of exercise...

Only got five minutes to spare? You can still make an impact on your figure by burning some unwanted calories and toning up your muscles.

The key is to do each of these moves for one minute, but at the highest level of exercution you can muster. Remember, if you can only manage five minutes, you have to make them count.

Ready, set, go hard...

1. One minute of jumping jacks (13 calories)

2. One minute of speed skaters (13 calories)
Jump from side to side, swinging your trailing leg behind as you land - like a speed skater. The lower you go, the more calories you'll burn.

3. One minute stomach plank (15 calories)
Draw your belly button up to your spine and hold.

4. One minute of burpees (10 calories)

5. One minute monkey jumps (13 calories)
Feet hip-width apart, go into a deep squat so your fingertips can touch the floor, then propel yourself into a jump lifting your arms high above your head. Go again, fast.

Total calories: 64

If doing this in the office would be frowned upon, running up the stairs for five minutes will burn 50 calories.
