Burst training is a type of exercises that allows your body to burn fat not only during your exercise but for hours after you work out. Adversely compared to classic exercise with long bouts in the gym your body raises stress hormones such as cortisol with actually causes your body to stimulates appetite, cortisol is a catabolic hormone which means it breaks down muscle, increases fat storing, and slows down or inhibits exercise recovery. So basically your burning fat while your exercising however after you are finished this hormone increases all these things causing the rest of your day to have elevated cortisol in your blood causing all these things.
With high intensity, short duration exercise your body responds by increasing the hormones and physiology you need to burn fat and produce muscle. As a result, you not only build muscle and burn fat during exercise, but your body responds by doing so for hours after.
Other benefits of Burst training include:
- HGH (human growth hormone) released in the body is proportional to the intensity of the exercise
- Fat is used in a greater way after higher intensity exercise due to the release of HGH
- The beta-endorphin level increases
- Increases growth of all muscle fibers, slowing down the muscle wasting typically attributed to aging
