Vigorous fitness training helps our bodies to burn calories hours after workout, finds study.

Men who exercised on a stationary bike for around 45 minutes burned an additional 190 calories over the 14 hours afterwards, according to the study.

The researchers said the same theory should apply to any intense activity, be it football, swimming or running, and for the fairer sex.

However, to get the extra calorie-burning benefits, the workout needs to be enough that 'you're sweating, your body temperature is up and your heart beats fast'.

"That means a person would lose one pound after five intense exercise bouts if they resisted the temptation to eat more," the Daily Mail quoted researcher David Nieman, of Appalachian State University in Kannapolis, North Carolina, U.S. as saying.

"This shows that intense exercise can have a meaningful impact on your body fat stores if you don't counter it with an extra piece of cake. I hope this will motivate people to get out there to do sweat-producing activities. You get so much bang for your buck," he concluded.
