Quick Reference

The use of non-carbohydrates as a source of energy during exercise so that the depletion of muscle glycogen stores is delayed. If fat, for example, makes a greater contribution to an athlete's efforts during the initial stages of a race, more glycogen will be available for the later stages and muscle fatigue will be delayed.
