Doing the same few moves over and over again won't challenge your body, but it will bore you to tears.

The trick is to change things up and mix high intensity short workouts with low intensity stamina workouts.

Here are four routines ranging from easy to advanced designed to raise your heart rate. Only take a break when stated and remember you will only get out what you put in - if you don't feel the burn you won't be burning fat!

EASY:

Jog on the spot for one minute. Run with high knees for 30 seconds. Run on the spot so your feet reach your bum for 30 seconds. Repeat this whole process three times, break for one minute and then repeat three more times.

MEDIUM:

Jog on the spot for two minutes. Next, do one minute of squats followed by two minutes of jumping jacks. Repeat this whole routine three times before taking a break.

HARD:

Start with two minutes of jogging on the spot, followed by one minute of jumping jacks, one minute of lunges and one minute of walking lunges. Repeat this twice followed by a one minute break. Repeat the whole process three times.

ADVANCED:

Start with one minute of ski jumps. For this you will need to get in a skiing stance (like you're about to go down a mountain) and jump with both feet off the floor to the right, bending your knees as you land. Next jump back to the left with the same movement.

Follow this with one minute of jumping jacks, one minute of high knees and one minute of fast running with bum kicks (where you try and touch your bum with your heels. All of these should be completed as fast as possible. At the end of the routine break for one minute and repeat two times.
