    interesting, though as you pointed out, the sample size at less than a 1/4 of the minimum, is tiny. but they both use 7, I wonder why.

    even with the small sample size, it sounds like a similar principle to eating smaller meals in a day, etc. not sure if i read it 100% right, but i think the calories being burned was similar, but their was greater lipolysis when taking a break in between the two bouts versus the one long exercise

    No, not really. It has to do with free fatty acid being released in the bloodstream because of the first bout of exercise while the thermic effect of food is just divided. I posted this to show that the post-exercise cardio that Pur was advocating and that some were afraid of was in fact a good idea.

    About the sample size : yeah it was small but that also means that the effect size was big enough to lead to a statistically significant result.

    i think i misspoke earlier; shouldn't have said it was the same principle, but kind of the same idea maybe to divvy up larger meals/cardio workouts into smaller portions to make them more effective. not that that really means anything anyway :o
