Abstract

Intramuscular triacylglycerol (IMTG) represents an energy store that can be used during exercise, when it may contribute up to 20% of total energy turnover depending on diet, gender, and exercise type. It is important to consider how measurements of IMTG have been performed. Hormone-sensitive lipase is thought to regulate breakdown of IMTG during exercise.
