EPOC, Excess Postexercise Oxygen Consumption, or after-burn, is the amount of Oxygen your body consumes after exercise to return to rest. After exercise, your body works hard to re-energize, cool off and replenish the energy system that fueled the efforts. What does that mean for you? It means that your body is burning calories after you have completed your workout. High intensity interval training (HIIT), like the Tabata method, is particularly effective in increasing EPOC levels.
Researchers have found that one session of HIIT can burn calories for 1.5 - 24 hours after exercise. While endurance exercise can burn an additional 7% calories due to EPOC, after HIIT workouts, calorie burn is almost double -- approximately 13% of total calories during the workout.
