medium difficulty - 30 minutes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1GDPNYTpqA (I just did this workout -- see Day 2 below -- and found it challenging, I only really had to rest on the jump squats in the final round)

hard difficulty - 20 minutes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZnsLVArIt8

I just discovered these guys on youtube. I went to their website and signed up, www.fitnessblender.com. They're FREE and have follow-along workouts based on difficulty, goal (strength, cardio, etc.), very much to my liking.

I'm on vacation for the next two weeks and intend to go hard fitness-wise every morning, kind of like a personal bootcamp, while greatly reducing calories.

I plan on doing:

day 1 - simplefit + stretching
day 2 - Javorek's complexes 5 rounds + fitness blender
day 3 - simplefit + stretching
day 4 - Javorek's complexes 5 rounds + fitness blender
day 5 - simplefit + stretching
day 6 - Javorek's complexes 5 rounds + fitness blender
day 7 - rest

It will be interesting to see what weight you are at the end of your vacation.

Hey - I'm a PT from Canada and all I do is bodyweight workouts with my clients. I've posted a bunch of free resources on my business site (just check out the free workout or any of the pages in the footer) to see lots of ways to increase the intensity of your workouts to burn more calories and increase the cardio component. Hope this helps!
