A large amount of body fat is stored in the form of triglyceride within adipose tissue as well as within muscle fibers. These stores must be mobilized into free fatty acids (FFA) and transported to muscle mitochondria for oxidation during exercise. Fatty acids from adipose tissue are mobilized into plasma and carried by albumin to muscle for oxidation. As exercise intensity increases from low (25% VO2max) to moderate (65% VO2max) to high (85% VO2max), plasma FFA mobilization declines.
