Table 2 Fat oxidation and data of RER from high-trained skiers at rest and during exercise «until exhaustion» / (Average ± Standard Error)

From: Priority use of medium-chain fatty acids during high-intensity exercise in cross-country skiers

Test stage RER Fat Oxidation, g/min VO2
Baseline 0.79 ± 0.02 0.20 ± 0.02 0.52 ± 0.02
Anaerobic threshold 0.98 ± 0.00 0.11 ± 0.03 3.54 ± 0.81
Peak of load “until exhaustion” 1.12 ± 0.03 0.00 4.25 ± 0.97
