Excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC, informally called after burn) is a measurably increased rate of oxygen intake following strenuous activity intended to erase the body’s “oxygen deficit”.
More evidence is being presented. This morning, I was quite irritated. Couldn’t find a pair of trousers that would fit or wasn’t damaged by my over enthusiastic thighs. Just imagine. I decided, the best way to ensure permanent separation between me and my muffin top was to chase the EPOC.
Here is a bonus video for you to join me in sequestering this problem 🙂
