    The impact of barbell bouncing during a deadlift set

    Very useful for multiple purposes, the deadlift is an excellent exercise for strengthening the muscular posterior chain. The loads being relatively heavy, the sequence of repetitions during sets is sometimes done with a bounce of the barbell on the ground. What differences does this create ?

    Predicting the maximum pull-ups repetitions using velocity-based training

    Velocity-based training has become very popular. It makes possible to determine accurately the 1RM of different loaded exercices. But for exercises at body weight, is it possible to determine the number of pull-ups during a set to failure ?

    HIIT and Hypertension : Improvement of cardiovascular functions

    High blood pressure is responsible for more than 7 million deaths a year. Indeed, the increase in blood pressure is an important risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. What is the impact of HIIT ?

    Comparison of different exercises for hamstrings and gluteus maximus activation

    It is not always easy to know which exercise variant has to be preferred to better recruit a muscle group. In the case of the hamstrings and gluteus maximus, between deadlift variations and hip thrust, which exercise to choose ?

    Progressive push-up training : What is the impact on muscle mass and strength ?

    Since more than 10 years, calisthenica increases in popularity, but few scientific studies have been interested to study it. What are the effects of a progressive variation in the difficulty of an exercise at body weight ?

    A guide to velocity based training for resistance training

    In recent years, sensors for measuring speed and power have appeared on the market. The craze aroused by this kind of device has become increasingly important. The purpose of this review is to provide a detailed user guide to velocity based training.

    Physical activity in young children : the benefits

    During pre-puberty, bone accumulation will improve the peak bone mass in the third decade of life. But in children, which physical activities will best stimulate mineral bone content ?

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 will be available the 15th of may and is on pre-order in french on 4Trainer or Amazon.fr.
