45 Minutes Burns Calories All Day

45 Minutes Burns Calories All Day If your busy lifestyle limits the amount of time you're able to spend exercising, a study published in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise should motivate you to accomplish more in that short period of time. Researchers recruited 10 men aged 22 to 33 and had them spend 24-hours in a metabolic chamber to measure how many calories they burned.

During one day-long period, these subjects peddled stationary bikes for 45 minutes in the morning, trying to maintain an average of 75% maximum capacity. The exercise session expended about 500 calories. But comparing that 24-hour period to another where the subjects didn't exercise at all, scientists discovered that an additional 190 calories was expended over the 14 hours following intense exercise. That's tacking an additional 37% onto the exercise session's net energy expenditure.

True Strength Moment: When you hear that regular exercise offers lasting results, you're probably not thinking of it in terms of how many additional calories you'll burn throughout the day. Maybe you should. If fat loss is one of your goals, the results of this study offer lots of motivation to hit is harder during your short stay at the gym.
