EPOC - Target Heart Rate Zones

EPOC is short for Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption. It is a numerical value comprising the duration and intensity of exercise. Due to the physiological training load caused by exercise, your body consumes more oxygen after exercise. The more strenuous the exercise, the higher the extra consumption of oxygen (EPOC) and the more your body's homeostasis will be disturbed. Therefore, EPOC gives a clear view of how much extra oxygen your body needs for recovery after exercise.
