Triglycerides or triacylglycerols are the major storage form for our free fatty acids.

Similar to how the body stores its glucose in the form of glycogen, free fatty acids are stored in the form of triglycerides.

Basically there are three free fatty acids stored in each triglyceride molecule that can be removed when needed for ATP production by exercising muscles.
