A good hour after intense cardio I'll be sitting down and feel a sizzle in my legs and arms - it feels like it's coming from just under my skin (not the deep tissue oxygen starved burn you get from lifting).
I was wondering if any knowledgeable folks on the board know if this is the feel of fat burning. Could the burning/popping feeling be the fat cells opening up?
If it helps, I'm on a cutting diet right now. 50/30/20, 5 meals a day. This burning feeling comes about an hour after my morning cardio (60 intense mins) on an empty stomach.
