Battle of the Sexes: Fat loss and Training edition

A lot of fat and carb burning going on there

An interesting difference exists between the sexes when it comes to training. During exercise women tend to burn more fat for energy than men, who tend to burn more carbs. Differences in hormonal balances play a role in this. However an advantage that men have over women is that men can utilize fat for energy for over 20 hours after intense strength training, while women do not have this prolonged period of fat burning, unfortunately it ends when the workout ends.
