Taking a break during a workout helps rev up fat metabolism

Taking a Break During a Workout May Help Fizzle Fat WebMD 7/20/07 "...Here's the fat-burning fitness plan they tested: Exercise for 30 minutes, take a 20 minute break, and finish with another 30 minutes of exercise...That revs up fat metabolism even more than a solid hour of exercise, note the researchers, who included Kazushige Goto, PhD, of the life sciences department at Japan's University of Tokyo..."

Just a small study and preliminary at best, but a surprise result... at least to me. I wonder what made them study taking a break? What was the theory going into this? Not in the article alas. Anyway, something to watch in the future. If it proves true, can you imagine all the jogger's you'll see sitting on park benches? Might make exercising a more thoughtful event as well... sorta like what the constitutional was.
