It is not necessary for you to stick to the traditional cardio for achieving EPOC. Many fitness course studies conducted in Europe show that weight training can also elevate your EPOC, just be sure to hire a trainer that has the right fitness trainer qualification for this type of exercise.
It may be a lot more effective compared to cardio training in some cases. If you are new to this type of rigorous and intense training can also try a work-to-rest ratio, which would ideally be 1:2.
For example, 60 seconds of exercise is followed by 2 minutes of rest. Alternatively, you can do a 5-minute warm-up followed by 60-seconds of fast running and two minutes of recovery walk. Repeat this circuit six to eight times.
Then followed by a five-minute cool-down, it would add up to a 30 minutes in total, which is more than enough. Before performing these exercises it is best to do the fitness training. Fitness training will warm up your body and your body will be prepared to do the exercises mentioned above.
In order to stimulate EPOC, one major thing should be kept in mind is an appropriate fitness training routine.
