Plant-based proteins are often considered "inferior" to proteins of animal origin. They would stimulate a lower rate of myofibrillar protein synthesis and they would not allow to sustain a good hypertrophy on the long term... But is this really the case?
Training frequency is one of the most important variables. It allows to module the total training volume. However, the results of studies are not always convincing because of the level of training and the natural variability that exists between each individual.
There are several variations of exercises to recruit the triceps brachii. But because of its bi-articular nature, not all exercises will have the same impact in terms of hypertrophic stimulation.
Progressive overload is a key principle in strength training that relies on increasing the load to ensure continuous neuromuscular adaptations. But what if the overload was done by increasing the number of repetitions instead?
The main interest of plyometric training lies in its ability to produce maximum power. However, some athletes question the relevance of this type of work for the purpose of muscle hypertrophy. What is really the case?
For people with type 2 diabetes, the recommended amount of physical activity is 150 minutes per week of moderate to high intensity. But what is really the impact of training volume on a key marker of diabetes, like glycated hemoglobin level.
Interval training (HIIT/SIT) increases fat oxidation and reduces body fat. But what is the amount of this effect and is it greater than that obtained during a continuous effort at low intensity?
Some authors suggest that there is a link between the susceptibility of a muscle to sustain muscle damage and the likelihood of strain injury. Does long muscle length training lead to better hypertrophy and protection?
