Responses to maximal strength training by age, gender and genetics

by P. Debraux | 2 June 2021

Maximal strength is inversely correlated with cardiovascular risks and mortality. Mainly due to our lifestyle, a decline in strength is observed from the age of 40 and accelerates between the ages of 50 and 70. Will specific strength training benefit everyone, regardless of age, gender or genetics ?

Effectively fight against the effects of menopause through resistance training, even at low intensity

by P. Debraux | 18 May 2021

Accelerated loss of muscle mass is often seen in postmenopausal women. While resistance training is an ideal solution to this, the recommended intensity for increasing muscle mass may be too high for some women. Can beneficial effects be obtained with light loads ? And if so, with which workout frequency ?

Frailty and sarcopenia: Benefits of resistance training

by A. Manolova | 11 May 2021

Longevity has increased hand in hand with radical changes in our lifestyles where malnutrition, sedentary behavior and physical inactivity have become the norm. As a result, we are living longer but with potentially more health problems, limiting our daily activities and reducing our quality of life.

Influence of repetition tempo on strength and hypertrophy

by A. Manolova | 4 May 2021

Gains in muscle mass are driven by many workout variables. One of these variables is the tempo, which is the speed at which each repetition is performed. How does tempo influence muscle gains ?

Foam rolling with or without vibration: Impact on muscle and mobility

by P. Debraux | 23 March 2021

Numerous studies have demonstrated over the past ten years the benefits of this simple practice before or after a workout on mobility and recovery. But what about foam-rolling with vibration ?

Sedentary time, physical activity & cardiovascular health after 70 years

by P. Debraux | 23 February 2021

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world. And unfortunately, their incidence increases with age. And if physical activity remains an ideal prevention tool, adherence is often very low with seniors. What would be the minimum intake to observe health benefits for this population?

Women & bone mineral density: sport differences

by A. Manolova | 16 February 2021

Bone mineral density is the most important predictor of bone fractures. As women age, the decrease in physical activity and the drop in estrogen level in post-menopause could lead to osteoporosis, and therefore to an increased risk of fractures...
