Monday “Did you know…?” Afterburn

Why do we emphasize “intensity” so heavily? Because it’s the exercise avenue leading to results. For the vast majority of you who enter the gym for weight management/stay trim/not be fat, you gotta go VIGOROUSLY!
See article on afterburn of 190 extra calories here.
Here: “As exercise intensity increases, the magnitude and duration of EPOC increases. Therefore, the higher the intensity, the greater the EPOC and the greater the caloric expenditure after exercise.”  (EPOC is “excess post-exercise oxygen consumption”)

BTW: the “take a knee” pics are homage to Dan-Oh who submitted this material!
