It's just basically because the body functions better when it has some amounts of triglycerides in store to use as energy during exercise.

If you have very little body thinks your starving and cuts down your metabolism and is more likely to steal protein from your muscles as energy and other things of that nature. Not exactly conducive to optimal athletic performance.

No clue on sources... you'll have to look for those in nutrition metabolism or something.
