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?
Yes, you must use the M.E.T. SYSTEM. Although this is not extreamly accurate, it can give you a good round about caculation of callories utilized during a weight lifting session. This system and the formula should be available on the internet. I have utlized both post exercise VO2 resprators and M.E.T. VO2 respirators, oxidation can occur and create variables in there results. I think the M.E.T. system is better if used correctly and not as costly. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
