In the quest for strength and hypertrophy, free-weights are often considered superior to machines, as they involve greater agonist/synergist activation and also allow much greater use of the core muscles. But is this really the case?
Plant-based proteins are often considered "inferior" to proteins of animal origin. They would stimulate a lower rate of myofibrillar protein synthesis and they would not allow to sustain a good hypertrophy on the long term... But is this really the case?
Training frequency is one of the most important variables. It allows to module the total training volume. However, the results of studies are not always convincing because of the level of training and the natural variability that exists between each individual.
Progressive overload is a key principle in strength training that relies on increasing the load to ensure continuous neuromuscular adaptations. But what if the overload was done by increasing the number of repetitions instead?
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.
