There are 4 Tabata Protocol bodyweight workouts in the General Discussion forum in the Spark team resistance Band and Bodyweight training. Look for Kickass workouts I-IV. There is not way to accurately measure the calorie burn outside of a laboratory setting so log it as strength work even though it has a pronounced cardio benefit also.
It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.
I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.
Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.
Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit
You can not build a six pack using twelve packs
Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

jumping jacks for 20 sec rest (repeat the jumping jacks for 3 rounds) push ups same as above speed squats running in place
If you do it between 90 and 100% of your maximum heart rate you will feel it.
I only do this and surge training. I get my strength training and cardio all at once. You can also check out ZWOW's on youtube or bodyrock.tv. Check on youtube for tabata training. Again the options are endless.
You can even do it on a treadmill or elliptical. Run at 7 or 8 mph (or whatever the fastest you can do), then go down to about 3 mph to rest then back up. Do it for a total of 10 or 12 minutes this way. Calorie burn is off the charts. Not sure a heart rate monitor would really help since some of the movements may not register as well.

I have a heart rate monitor so I'm not sure. I know the calorie burn is off the charts.
