Impact of training frequency on muscle strength and hypertrophy

by P. Debraux | 21 January 2020

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?

Is there a link between gray matter and cardiorespiratory fitness?

by P. Debraux | 14 January 2020

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?

Impact of running on mortality risk

by A. Manolova | 12 November 2019

Physical activity reduces the risk of mortality. Running is one of the most popular activities in the world because it is easily adaptable to everyone's level and can be practiced almost anywhere. But what is the impact of running on mortality and is there a dose-response relationship ?

Association between sedentary behaviour and mortality : impact of physical activity

by P. Debraux | 15 October 2019

Long periods of sitting are associated with increased chronic disease risk and higher mortality. However, what is the impact of physical activity on these risks ?

High blood pressure : Exercise vs. Drugs

by A. Manolova | 1 October 2019

High blood pressure is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, which account for more than 30% of the world's annual mortality. Face to drug treatments, what effects can be expected from physical exercise ?

Reduction of visceral adiposity : Exercise vs. Drugs

by P. Debraux | 24 September 2019

Obesity today affects a very important part of the world population. One of the aggravating factors of this condition is the accumulation of visceral fat, strongly correlated with many cardio-metabolic diseases. How to fight against it effectively?

Endurance and resistance training: effects on telomeres and telomerase

by A. Manolova | 17 September 2019

By shortening, telomeres protect our chromosomes during cell replication. They are an indicator of our cellular aging. However, by our life choices, it is possible to protect them and even to lengthen them, thus increasing the life of our cells.
