Does anyone know of an equation to determine the number of calories expended during recovery from a weight lifting session?
I am looking for research that demonstrates an EPOC like effect of resistance training. It seems as though resistance training may be the best way to lose fat due to the high number of calories it would take to recover. This is pure speculation on my part but any validation of this idea would be interesting. I understand that EPOC after High Intensity Interval Training can burn a significant number of calories for a few hours after a workout. It makes sense to me that post resistance training (depending on the intensity) that we may create an "after burn" for several hours maybe even up to 36 hours. What are your thoughts?
