Afterburn Effect

The “afterburn effect,” also called “excess post-exercise oxygen consumption” or EPOC, refers to the correlation between the number of calories burned post-exercise and the activity’s intensity. Research generally suggests that the longer and more intense the exercise, the more oxygen the body consumes afterward, meaning a higher sustained metabolic rate and thus more calories burned after the activity.
