EPOC following high intensity resistance training (HIRT) 80-90% 1RM has been shown to cause a significantly large EPOC than both continuous aerobic training and circuit resistance training. Elliot et al. 1992
I agree that the EPOC effect has only a small impact on weight loss. From the research you have mentioned this would certainly confirm my suspicions.You did mention a recent study which had a calorie after burn of 190kcal when subjects burned 518kcal
more» with intensive cycling - this is quite staggering in comparison with other studies (37% of calories were a result of EPOC!!). This is conflicting with the other research mentioned and pretty much everything else I've read today.Does anyone know whether this study is a more up to date evaluation of EPOC or just a fluke? (quoted below)________________________________________________________________________________"A more recent study found an increase of 190 kcal in metabolic rate over a 14.2-hr period following an exercise session, which is only 13.4 kcal per hour, or the equivalent of about two almonds (10). The exercise session resulted in an expenditure of 519 kcal."_______________________________________________________________________________Andy fromwww.myrunningtips.com«less
