Sports Performance and Antioxidants

by A. Manolova | 17 April 2019

Antioxidant supplementation is often recommended to fight against oxidative stress, one of the presumed responsible for cell aging. However, any sustained physical activity leads to more or less oxidative stress which in turn stimulates various metabolic processes. But is it really bad ? What will be the impact on sports performance ?

Low volume of HIIT and its cardiometabolic impact

by P. Debraux | 5 March 2019

Because of its intermittent nature, HIIT is often recommended to save time. However, some sessions may take between 20 and 30 minutes, which may compare to a typical moderate intensity continuous training for a sedentary person. Is it possible to make shorter session while maintaining the cardiometabolic benefits ?

Resistance training and music : Influence on performance

by P. Debraux | 26 February 2019

Listening to music usually has a strong impact on mood and motivation. Yet everyone's musical tastes are very different. In gym, where music is broadcast continuously, it is not uncommon to meet people with headphones. What is the impact of his favorite music ?

"Snacks Training": It takes little to improve his health

by A. Manolova | 19 February 2019

More and more people are physically inactive and lack of time is one of the main reason for this sedentary lifestyle. Interval training can reduce the duration of sessions while benefiting from positive effects. But how much is it possible to reduce the duration of a session ?

Differences in muscles activity during Hip Thrust variations

by A. Manolova | 12 February 2019

During an exercise, the positioning of the body can have a more or less important impact on muscular recruitment. In Hip Thrust, how does the placement of the feet and the intention of force can alter the muscle activation ?

Effect of band flossing on ankle range of motion

by P. Debraux | 19 June 2018

Working on joint mobility involves a multitude of tools. In recent years, Kelly Starrett has been recommending the use of Floss Bands as a means of targeting connective tissue within the joint. Is it working ? Can we improve ankle mobility by flossing ?

Osteopenia and running : Impact of resistance training

by P. Debraux | 5 June 2018

Numerous studies show that despite its repeated impacts, running would seem to be paradoxically a bad choice to strengthen its bone capital, both for women and men. What would be the effect of adding resistance training sessions ?

Deadlift : Validity of different devices to measure the force-velocity relationship

by P. Debraux | 29 May 2018

Inertial sensors are more and more present on the market and in the gyms. For a very low price and a very small size, the manufacturers claim reliable and accurate measurements. What is it really ?
