Scientific Article for the Week
This research paper looked at the effect Sprint training and traditional low intensity cardio has on a process called EPOC (excess postexercise oxygen consumption) which has been long thought of as a benefit of HIIT over Steady state or traditional cardio. Results from the study are interesting and will open the door to hopefully more research into this particular area.
- Excess Postexercise Oxygen Consumption After High-Intensity and Sprint Interval Exercise, and Continuous Steady-State Exercise. Tucker WJ, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26950358
