    The CNS activation during your workout leads to a increased free fatty acid level in the blood and also to a depletion of glycogen stores which would mean that you're body is in fat burning mode. You would have th benefits of long steady state cardio (the "fat burning zone") without having to wait too long to get there. I dunno if it makes a significant difference but you get the bang for your buck (or whatever that expression is :rofl:). Thib talked about that in his fat burning article.


    I'm not sure about the lactate thing though, what I've read was that CNS activation and cathecholamine release ended up increasing the amount of FFA in blood but who knows.

    I recall seeing a study indicating that cardio right after a workout (20 min rest I think) lead to more fat loss that if you waited a couple of hours.

    I tend to try to avoid it post-workout, mostly due to being hungry. But it sounds like it could help you keep lean.
