Burst Training Burns Fat for 24 Hours
Journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise = 1996
This study showed that an anaerobically trained interval group (Burst Training) burned significantly
more fat than their aerobically trained counterparts. Not only did the interval group burn more fat
during exercise, but they exhibited increased fat burning effects that persisted for 24 hours after the
exercise had stopped. These results clearly show that Burst Training burns more overall fat and
calories during exercise, and demonstrate that EPOC leads to a continued fat burn after exercise.
The interval group accomplished this with an exercise session that was 15 minutes shorter than the
aerobic group.
