For every 100 calories you burn during exercise…you can expect to burn 15 calories after!

DID YOU KNOW?!

For every 100 calories you burn during exercise…you can expect to burn 15 calories after.
So for example,  if you run 3 miles (150 lb. woman) you burn approx. 300 calories during the run…and approx. 45 after.  Yet another little “benefit” of working out!!  🙂

    Is this from increasing metabolism or do the muscles actually continute to work?

      Heather it’s from increasing metabolism, and the amount of oxygen used. Exercise scientists call it “excess post-exercise oxygen consumption,” or EPOC.
