This chapter summarizes current knowledge regarding the interaction between lipid availability, endurance exercise, and insulin sensitivity. We discuss the role of lipid availability as a key mediator of insulin resistance in obesity, the proposed cellular mechanisms underlying this relationship, recent studies demonstrating that acute exercise protects against lipid-induced insulin resistance, how fatty acid partitioning may contribute to this protective effect of endurance exercise and finally remaining questions and future directions in the field.
