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.
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?
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?
During a caloric restriction phase, fat loss is often accompanied by a loss of muscle mass. To stimulate anabolism, a high-protein diet and resistance training can help counteract these negative effects. What is the role of training volume?
