According to ACE “Strength training with short rest intervals requires ATP from the anaerobic and aerobic pathways, leading to a significant EPOC effect.”
Strength training with compound, multijoint weightlifting exercises (think weighted squats, push ups, dumbbell swings, concentration curls, etc) places a great demand on the involved muscles for ATP from the anaerobic pathways. Weight training with short recovery intervals increases this demand, which yields a greater EPOC effect during the post-exercise recovery period. This means you burn more calories after your workout is done while your body repairs muscle tissue and restores to its resting state, leaving you feeling even stronger next time. Yes!!
