Brad Schoenfeld, known for helping physique competitors get into contest-ready shape, outlines the metabolic resistance training program he uses for fat loss and contest shredding. In this lecture, you’ll learn how calories are burned during and post-exercise, and how training can be programmed to maximize fat burning.
“The calories burned after exercise are accrued through something called “excess post-exercise oxygen consumption,” also called EPOC. This is also known as “the after-burn,” a measure of the energy expended to return your body to its homeostatic state following the completion of a workout. EPOC includes things like replenishing glycogen stores, clearing lactic acid, re-oxygenating blood, restoring hormonal levels and re-establishing normal core temperature.” ~Brad Schoenfeld
