Here's another short on time series that will get your heart rate going so you can burn calories.  You can adjust the timing from 40 seconds on to 20 seconds off down to 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off depending on your fitness level.  This is also a great series to incorporate into an upper body strength routine to fire up your heart rate in between sets....just an idea:)
