Women's Health might be able to provide you with a little extra motivation to get that body of yours summer ready. So where do we begin? Say you're already working out regularly, but you haven't seen much change. You have to send your body a curve ball, and totally mix it up!

The article says that when your body isn't challenged, you burn fewer calories. So when you change up your normal workout routine, or make things harder your body starts to work harder! According to a study, working out this way can burn off almost 500 calories an hour.

So here's the plan:

Two workouts (plan A, and B), three times a week and rotate between them.

Plan A:

Use the heavier weights. For each exercise, perform as many reps as you can in 30 seconds. Rest for 30 seconds between exercises.

Plan B:

Use the lighter weights. For each exercise, perform as many reps as you can in 50 seconds. Rest for 10 seconds between exercises.
