Summary : Maximal fat oxidation can be determined by a simple incremental exercise test in both athletes but also older and very untrained persons. The first part of this talk will focus on the coupling between maximal fat oxidation and metabolic health and fitness. The second part will focus on the coupling between endurance performance and maximal fat oxidation and some of the potential mechanisms.

Summary: This talk will tell the story of the studies we conducted these past 15 years on muscle structure, energetics, microvasculature and function in sickle cell trait and disease. The beneficial effects (or not) of endurance training will also be exhibited. The talk will include data obtained in patients but also in a mouse model of SCD.
