The other day in saw this on a website that it said if you do these number of exercises to the number of reps you will burn about 1,000. I not sure this is true or gimic sort of thing. Just wanted your view on It. To me it seems to high, but here are the exercises to the number of reps.

100 jumping jacks
100 crunches
100 squats
25 push ups
Then it repeats three time.

Depends on the individual, but 1000, highly doubt it. Probably more like 200-300 calories.

Looks like a program designed by a 10-11 year old who passed grade school health class.

You think 300 jumping jacks, 300 crunches, 300 squats, and 75 push ups are 200-300 calories? 15 minutes on a rowing machine burns 200-300 calories for me...I bet this can get pretty close to 1000.

Jumping jacks for 5 min. Crunches for 5 min, Squats for 5-10 min, push up 2-5 min. 17-25 min. People in good shape will get it done in less then 15 min. Crunches are effectively a rest period as they don't burn many calories. Someone 200+ may break 300 cals.

Someone 600lbs or higher who have never exercised in their life could maybe get close :D Probably die from a heart attack before finishing tho.

This seems like a pretty good breakdown/assessment.
