Calorie-burn at Rest

INTRO:
New research suggests that the warmth that you feel in your body for hours after a HARD workout doesn't mean you're burning calories for hours afterwards. It's more likely that the extended warmth is part our body's process of repairing minor tissue damage.  Instead, the intensity is what keeps the calories rolling off for some time.


Dr. Joseph LaForgia, an exercise physiologist at the University of South Australia, says people who exercise intensely — doing repeated sprints, for example — can experience a prolonged metabolic effect. Their metabolic rates can go up and remain elevated for seven hours after the session is finished.
PushEven so, the extra calories burned were about 10 percent of the calories burned during the intense exercise.

As for people who exercised moderately, like most people do, the small increase in metabolism lasted no more than two hours and added up to only about 5 percent of the amount they burned while exercising. And since a modest exercise bout does not burn nearly as many calories as an intense one, people who exercised modestly ended up with very few extra calories burned afterward.

CONCLUSION:
If you workout HARD during exercise and you are in better shape, you will likely get longer (up to 7 hours) calorie-burn compared to those that workout moderately and are in fair or poor shape.  Keep up the hard work.
