[gym] HIIT vs aerobs

Hight Intensity Interval Training is 3x more efficient than aereobic training. Why?
All because of the phenomenon called Afterburn. 20min of appropriate HIIT work out burns the same amount of calories as 60min of aerobs.
It also means that shorter lasting intervals are less likely to cause muscle mass decrease.
Fat is burned during physical exertion but mostly during regeneration. Conclusion?
Greater physical exertion = greater regeneration = more fat burned.

Time to end the stereotype that aerobs are the best ways of burning fat.
