Exercising continuously for long hours or doing it in parts?

According to a latest report by Japanese researchers, doing exercise with breaks can burn higher amount of fat for us as compared to doing it continuously. Report says that we have much more chances of losing extra fat when we do exercise workouts with rest in between.

American College of Sports Medicine suggests modest exercise for 45 minutes to burn extra fat. But this study shows that we have better chances of losing fat if we keep some rest period between our exercise programs (From Medical News Today).

So far I believe in doing exercise for hours without any rest. But now I have a solid reason to have some rest between my exercises. Now I hope I will be able to concentrate more on doing exercise regularly and for longer hours with some rest period in between.

Hey Brad!
I only have a comment or two, My name is Donald, my first comment is that I don't believe that people take into consideration the way our food industry has changed and how that in itself may affect different people differently, the hormones in the feed and the other additives to beef up the beef and poultry has to adversely affect some of us. Add that with the differences in matabolisms in different people and you could have a problem that affects a large number of unsuspecting people who quite possibly never even give it a second thought.
