How Many Calories Are You Really Burning?

May 18, 2020 | Coach's Corner | 0 comments

I know there are a lot of you out there obsessing over how many calories you are burning in your workouts, in your day, and while you sleep. But did you know there are four different ways your body can burn off that energy? Through resistance training we can see all the ways we feel the burn. Anaerobic energy is primarily used during fast, explosive bursts and heavily loaded movements. Aerobic energy carries you through long runs and endurance rounds. In the hours following your workout, your body will continue to burn additional calories in a process called excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC). Even days after your workouts your body is still working for you using energy to remodel muscle tissues and come back stronger. This is one of the many reasons why resistance training is so important for making important body changes. All these energy pathways combine to create a fierce calorie burning machine like no other!
