Impact of plyometrics on muscle hypertrophy

by P. Debraux | 13 September 2022

The main interest of plyometric training lies in its ability to produce maximum power. However, some athletes question the relevance of this type of work for the purpose of muscle hypertrophy. What is really the case?

Type 2 diabetes: Dose-response relationship of cardio on glycated hemoglobin

by A. Manolova | 31 August 2022

For people with type 2 diabetes, the recommended amount of physical activity is 150 minutes per week of moderate to high intensity. But what is really the impact of training volume on a key marker of diabetes, like glycated hemoglobin level.

Interval training vs. classic "cardio": difference in fat oxidation

by P. Debraux | 23 August 2022

Interval training (HIIT/SIT) increases fat oxidation and reduces body fat. But what is the amount of this effect and is it greater than that obtained during a continuous effort at low intensity?

Hypertrophy and hamstring protection: seated vs prone leg curl

by P. Debraux | 9 August 2022

Some authors suggest that there is a link between the susceptibility of a muscle to sustain muscle damage and the likelihood of strain injury. Does long muscle length training lead to better hypertrophy and protection?

Losing body fat while maintaining muscle mass: The role of training volume

by P. Debraux | 2 August 2022

During a caloric restriction phase, fat loss is often accompanied by a loss of muscle mass. To stimulate anabolism, a high-protein diet and resistance training can help counteract these negative effects. What is the role of training volume?

Seniors, Physical Inactivity and Kettlebell

by A. Manolova | 14 June 2022

The kettlebell is beneficial for strengthening muscles and improving cardiovascular capacity, however, the use of the kettlebell often relies on explosive exercises that require good technical skills. Is this type of training suitable for seniors?

Resistance training & Protein Supplementation: What are the effects?

by P. Debraux | 26 May 2022

Resistance training is often associated with the consumption of protein supplements. The main goal is to optimize the effects of training on muscle strength and mass. But is it really the case?

Resistance training and high blood pressure: Lifting heavier is good for your health

by A. Manolova | 18 May 2022

Current official recommendations include moderate to high intensity weight training (50-80% of 1RM), targeting large muscle groups, at least twice a week but how do we know the impact of load intensity on hypertension?
