Follow the simple workout below for a challenging, fat-burning, endurance-building series. Repeat the whole workout as fast as you can in sets of 10-15-20-25 reps with a one-minute break between each workout.

1. Burpees

Start in a crouching position on your hands and feet. Jump your feet back into a plank then perform a push-up. Return to plank position, jump feet forward to your hands then jump up into the air.

2. Squat jumps

Start in a standing position. Sit back into a squat, making sure your thighs are parallel to the ground. Leap up into the air in an explosive movement. In a fluid movement, return to a squatting position and repeat the jump, without stopping.

3. Mountain climbers

Start in a high plank position. Keeping your bum down thorough, pump your knees towards your chest in a rapid running motion.
