The impact of barbell bouncing during a deadlift set

by P. Debraux | 18 April 2018

Very useful for multiple purposes, the deadlift is an excellent exercise for strengthening the muscular posterior chain. The loads being relatively heavy, the sequence of repetitions during sets is sometimes done with a bounce of the barbell on the ground. What differences does this create ?

Predicting the maximum pull-ups repetitions using velocity-based training

by A. Manolova | 3 April 2018

Velocity-based training has become very popular. It makes possible to determine accurately the 1RM of different loaded exercices. But for exercises at body weight, is it possible to determine the number of pull-ups during a set to failure ?

HIIT and Hypertension : Improvement of cardiovascular functions

by P. Debraux | 20 March 2018

High blood pressure is responsible for more than 7 million deaths a year. Indeed, the increase in blood pressure is an important risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. What is the impact of HIIT ?

Comparison of different exercises for hamstrings and gluteus maximus activation

by A. Manolova | 13 March 2018

It is not always easy to know which exercise variant has to be preferred to better recruit a muscle group. In the case of the hamstrings and gluteus maximus, between deadlift variations and hip thrust, which exercise to choose ?

Progressive push-up training : What is the impact on muscle mass and strength ?

by P. Debraux | 6 March 2018

Since more than 10 years, calisthenica increases in popularity, but few scientific studies have been interested to study it. What are the effects of a progressive variation in the difficulty of an exercise at body weight ?

Physical activity in young children : the benefits

by P. Debraux | 14 February 2018

During pre-puberty, bone accumulation will improve the peak bone mass in the third decade of life. But in children, which physical activities will best stimulate mineral bone content ?

A shrug variant to better increase the trapezius muscle activation

by P. Debraux | 6 February 2018

Whether for shoulder rehabilitation or looking for upper trapezius hypertrophy, the standard shrug exercise may not be the most appropriate for maximizing the recruitment of these muscles.

Effects of weight and inertia on muscle properties in bench press

by A. Manolova | 1 February 2018

Resistance training usually involves working against the weight and inertia of the mass to be moved. But what would be the effects on the force-velocity profile if weight and inertia were isolated ?
