The afterburn effect is a term that really gained popularity in the late 90’s.

He is correct in describing what triggers that afterburn effect…
Short bursts of intense activity.
[Tip] Short bursts of intense activity also release free fatty acids into the bloodstream. If you follow these intense efforts with slow cardio, you can easily burn a lot of this fat.
