Effects of compression garments on balance

by P. Debraux | 30 April

By improving the perception of somatosensory information, compression garments make balance control more optimal in the elderly, injured people and high-level athletes, but what about healthy and active people ?

Foam rolling with or without vibration: Impact on muscle and mobility

by P. Debraux | 23 March 2021

Numerous studies have demonstrated over the past ten years the benefits of this simple practice before or after a workout on mobility and recovery. But what about foam-rolling with vibration ?

Sedentary time, physical activity & cardiovascular health after 70 years

by P. Debraux | 23 February 2021

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?

Women & bone mineral density: sport differences

by A. Manolova | 16 February 2021

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...

Training to failure or not: Impact on hypertrophy and strength

by P. Debraux | 12 February 2021

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?

Squat vs. Hip Thrust: Muscle strength and hypertrophy

by A. Manolova | 4 February 2020

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?

Impact of training volume on muscle strength and hypertrophy

by P. Debraux | 28 January 2020

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?
