    Frailty and sarcopenia: Benefits of resistance training

    Longevity has increased hand in hand with radical changes in our lifestyles where malnutrition, sedentary behavior and physical inactivity have become the norm. As a result, we are living longer but with potentially more health problems, limiting our daily activities and reducing our quality of life.

    Influence of repetition tempo on strength and hypertrophy

    Gains in muscle mass are driven by many workout variables. One of these variables is the tempo, which is the speed at which each repetition is performed. How does tempo influence muscle gains ?

    Effects of compression garments on balance

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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?

The site of scientific information about sport Training and physical activity

We are happy to welcome you on the brand new english version of our educationnal website dedicated to sport and physical activity. Since 2011, our website was a french constant growing resource for experts and people passionate about learning sport sciences and aiming to stay up-to-date. You can find out what contain the sections of the website through the different presentations below.

Feel free to subscribe to our newsletter to receive a weekly summary of news from the site. You can also follow us on our Facebook page to stay in touch with us. Sci-Sport.com will evolve in the coming months. At first, an article will be published each week. With the time, this rate will increase. And this content will be constantly free and in an open access to all.

Our book ! - "The Elastic Band Resistance" (in french)

The Elastic Band Resistance - A Scientific Approach to Performance, Health, and Fitness is the first book to explain the biomechanical and physiological principles that underlie elastic resistance and the value of this resistance in humans . At a time when sports equipment available to consumers, coaches and physical trainers are legion, the authors, both doctors in biomechanics and sports science, dispel misunderstandings and discard the misconceptions about elastic bands training. By combining theoretical explanations based on a hundred of scientific references and examples of practical applications, this book highlights the unsuspected qualities of resistance bands for all publics.

The Elastic Band Resistance - A Scientific Approach to Performance, Health, and Fitness addresses different aspects: sports performance to illustrate the potential gains in speed, strength and power, health to demonstrate interest in prevention and rehabilitation injury and fitness to explain the benefits on the musculoskeletal system of a workout with elastic bands for any public. A collection of illustrated exercises and training programs adapted to all are also available. As a guide, this book will explain many concepts while remaining accessible to larger numbers and creating a bridge between scientific knowledge and field applications.

The book is available in french on Amazon.fr or FNAC.com.
