  • Numerous studies have reported a strong correlation between intramuscular triacylglycerol (IMTG) content and insulin resistance. However, the proposed relationship between IMTG accumulation and skeletal muscle insulin resistance is not unambiguous, as trained athletes have been shown to be markedly insulin sensitive despite an elevated IMTG storage. Though the latter has often been attributed to differences in muscle fibre type composition and/or structural characteristics of the… CONTINUE READING
