Validation of a Fatmax Protocol

27 February 2017

A high capacity to burn fat during exercise is desirable to both athletes and the general population. The current study looks to develop an exercise protocol to accurately measure fat use during exercise, so we can better understand factors influencing maximum fat use during exercise. We hope this will help develop strategies to optimize exercise and nutrition for health.

The study requires five visits (between 20-60 minutes) to the University of Bath and is outlined in greater detail below.


Ethical approval

The study has been granted Ethical Approval by the Research Ethics Approval Committee for Health (REACH) at the University of Bath (Reference: EP 16/17 141)
