the shortest way to lose weight. 6 Tips for Burning Calories.

To take advantage of "excessive oxygen consumption" to burn calories after your workout, you should know the following:

Whether you want to build muscle, lose weight, or improve your overall health, it may take some time to notice the fruits of exercise. If you want your body to continue to burn calories long after training, this can only be achieved by high-intensity resistance exercises because it increases metabolism increases the so-called "post-burning effect", or "post-workout oxygen consumption" (EPOC).

After the workout is done, oxygen absorption remains high in order to restore muscles to rest, by breaking down fat and stored carbohydrates, according to the American Exercise Council.

Excess oxygen is the oxygen that is available from energy use during exercises "to burn calories, while the body is recovering and resting," according to Tracy Wehrman, an exercise physiologist.

Resistance exercises are different from strength exercises, and resistance exercises cannot be referred to as strength exercises, and although they are associated with weight lifting, resistance exercises are aimed at increasing muscular endurance, and strength exercises are aimed at increasing muscle strength.

Examples of resistance exercises recommended by trainers include squatting, weight-throwing exercise, heavyweight rush exercise, dumb pressure exercise, shoulder-lifting squat, front-hand exercise, shoulder pressure exercise, and more.

1. High-intensity resistance exercises stimulate excess oxygen during rest, more than low-intensity exercises.

Through metabolism, our bodies transform the food we eat into a chemical compound called adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which uses fuel that provides the body with the energy needed for muscle activity, rather than oxygen.

2. Heavy exercise with short breaks makes a muscle shaking fast and provides more excess oxygen.

Fast-acting muscles, used in resistance exercises and weight lifting can generate more strength and responsiveness than slow-rose muscles.

3. Stable heart exercises (aerobic) are less burning; running, swimming and cycling are great exercises, but they are less burning calories, because their intensity is constant, and they depend on oxygen to produce energy, so there is not enough oxygen left to consume during rest and enhance the burning process.

4. More oxygen burns more calories, our bodies spend approximately 5 calories, to consume one liter of oxygen. Therefore, excess oxygen consumed after exercise can increase the net calories burned(calories are the amount of energy needed to heat one liter of water by one percentage point).

5. Excessive oxygen consumption is influenced by the intensity of exercises, not their duration, so intermittent high-intensity training (HIIT) is the most effective way to stimulate the effect of excessive oxygen consumption as it requires the provision of the necessary energy much more quickly, so that we can maintain high-intensity activity only for a short period of time, because our energy quickly runs out, the body uses oxygen to reconstruct muscle proteins damaged during exercise, even after it is finished.

6. Excess oxygen reproduces the energy (ATP) consumed during exercise, during post-workout recovery, blood oxygen levels are restored, to compensate for energy, and to adjust body temperature to resting levels.

According to Steve Bruniwicz, an exercise physiologist at New York University.
