    Do you want crossfit type metcons? Check the main site - they post a daily WOD - go through the history and jot down the metcons. Albany Crossfit has been doing some good WODs lately that might be up your alley - they also post their WODs daily.

    Think about Interval Training.

    i.e. 30 seconds of work, 30 seconds of rest. As you get fitter either increase the work or reduce the rest.

    Works pretty well with kettlebells and bodyweight exercises or both.

    Burpees are always a killer in any set but great for getting your heartrate up very quickly.

    A ladder i do quite a bit is 10KB swings and then ladder burpees from 1 to 15 (used to be 10) and then back down again for time.

    the 300 workout is pretty good as well if you like challenges. you can google it and look at the different variations.
    2010 - 5,11 and 101KG

    2012 - 5,11 and 77KG

    Train hard, eat well and love life

    there are a few threads on here with some great metcon workouts. here's one i started a few months back:

    i also agree about looking at the crossfit WOD. even better, i think, is the spartan race WOD...it's mostly body weight work that can really get that heartrate up for 20-30 minute workouts.

    Slow it down for more intensity.

    Doing it in HIT fashion will leave you toasted. Do one set all to failure (might need a spotter)...you know you hit failure when you continue pushing as hard as you can and it no longer moves or it starts to fall. Take 5-10 seconds on the concentric AND the eccentric movement. Move on to the next movement with no rest. Do the Big Five (bench, pull ups, shoulder press, rows, leg press)...and call it a day. Should be done in under 15 minutes for High Intensity Training.
