I read an article in Muscle & Fitness magazine that quoted a study (sorry I don't remember the study) that found that subjects who performed HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) had double the fat burn of subjects who performed MISS (Medium Intensity Steady State) cardio workouts. The logic to explain this was that the HIIT puts the body in a state of readiness waiting for the next high intensity interval. This 'After Burn' was good for 24 hours after the cardio was performed. So in essence the HIIT doubles the fat burning for 24 hours after the cardio workout ends.
