Understanding the factors that effect maximal fat oxidation.

J Int Soc Sports Nutr 2018 12;15. Epub 2018 Jan 12.

2Department of Health, Exercise & Sports Sciences, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM USA.

Lipids as a fuel source for energy supply during submaximal exercise originate from subcutaneous adipose tissue derived fatty acids (FA), intramuscular triacylglycerides (IMTG), cholesterol and dietary fat. These sources of fat contribute to fatty acid oxidation (FAox) in various ways. The regulation and utilization of FAs in a maximal capacity occur primarily at exercise intensities between 45 and 65% VO, is known as maximal fat oxidation (MFO), and is measured in g/min.

Updating ACSM's Recommendations for Exercise Preparticipation Health Screening.

Med Sci Sports Exerc 2015 Nov;47(11):2473-9

1Department of Kinesiology, University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI; 2Department of Preventive Cardiology, Beaumont Health Center, Royal Oak, MI; 3Department of Cardiology, Hartford Hospital, Hartford, CT; 4Teachers College, Columbia University, New York, NY; 5No affiliation; 6Division of Mathematics and Sciences, North Carolina Wesleyan College, Rocky Mount, NC; and 7Department of Kinesiology, University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT.

The purpose of the American College of Sports Medicine's (ACSM) exercise preparticipation health screening process is to identify individuals who may be at elevated risk for exercise-related sudden cardiac death and/or acute myocardial infarction. Recent studies have suggested that using the current ACSM exercise preparticipation health screening guidelines can result in excessive physician referrals, possibly creating a barrier to exercise participation. In addition, there is considerable evidence that exercise is safe for most people and has many associated health and fitness benefits; exercise-related cardiovascular events are often preceded by warning signs/symptoms; and the cardiovascular risks associated with exercise lessen as individuals become more physically active/fit.

Clare E Marsh

J Strength Cond Res 2012 Feb;26(2):548-54

School of Health Sport and Rehabilitation Sciences, Directorate of Sport, Exercise and Physiotherapy, University of Salford, Salford, United Kingdom.

The purpose of this study was to assess the validity of the American College of Sports Medicine's (ACSM's) submaximal treadmill running test in predicting VO2max. Twenty-one moderately well-trained men aged 18-34 years performed 1 maximal treadmill test to determine maximal oxygen uptake (M VO2max) and 2 submaximal treadmill tests using 4 stages of continuous submaximal exercise. Estimated VO2max was predicted by extrapolation to age-predicted maximal heart rate (HRmax) and calculated in 2 ways: using data from all submaximal stages between 110 b·min(-1) and 85% HRmax (P VO2max-All), and using data from the last 2 stages only (P VO2max-2).
