Exercise Tip – Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption

Exercise helps boost the body’s metabolism long after you leave the gym due to something known as ‘excess post-exercise oxygen consumption’ (EPOC). After ending your workout, the body demands higher levels of oxygen to help it cool down, regulate hormones and return sufficient levels of oxygen to blood and muscles. This means your workout keeps burning calories long after you press stop on your iPod!
