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?
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...
For some, training to failure is optimal for muscle hypertrophy and strength since such method assumes that all available motor units are recruited. But for others, this method could even have a detrimental effect. What does science say about it?
Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disease that affects more than 285 million people worldwide. To fight it, glucose-lowering medications are often prescribed, but they are associated with a lower quality of life. Could physical activity do the trick without it?
Hip Thrust succeeded Squat as the king exercise to glutes hypertrophy. However, all the studies that have shown the superiority of Hip Thrust have been based on electromyography and none of them has verified the impact on actual muscle hypertrophy. So is Hip Thrust really worth it?
Among the variables to take into account in resistance training, volume is one of the most important to obtain results in both strength and hypertrophy. However, how do you know if a practitioner is not doing too much? And is there a benefit to always wanting to do more?
Many bodybuilders train each muscle group 1-2 times a week. Indeed, Split is often seen as an advanced way of training since the emphasis is on training volume. But what would be the impact of increasing the training frequency of a muscle group instead?
Dementia is a global epidemic with an estimated 50 million people worldwide. It is generally characterized by cerebral atrophy, certain areas being more affected than others. Some suggest that physical activity could slow this atrophy. But is there a link between physical activity level and brain volume?
