Abstract:   (4800 Views)

The exercise intensity, at which the maximal fat oxidation (MFO) rate occurs, has been defined as Fatmax. It has been suggested that the fat oxidation rate during the Fatmax intensity is approximately 2-fold greater than at any other intensity although modifiable by several physiological conditions (training, previous exercise or meal). There are a few standardized protocols for estimating of Fatmax. The most common tests include: Cycle Ergometer (CE) and Treadmill (TM). Reviewing of tables of the study appoint that the extent of weight or fat loss in response to exercise training varies among individuals.

APPLICABLE REMARKS

  • We have defined the exercise intensity at which maximal fat oxidation is observed as Fatmax.
  • Fatmax may have importance role for weight loss programs, and health-related exercise Programs.
  • Lipoxmax values are different and can be modifiable by some factors such as gender, puberty, training status, obesity and diabetes.
