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.

Do ultra-processed foods make you fat?

by P. Debraux | 5 June 2019

Prevalence of obesity is very large in the world and continue to gain ground every year, affecting high-income countries as well as those with low and moderate incomes. In parallel, industrials offer ultra-processed foods, inexpensive, rich in calories and highly convenient. But what is the impact on our body weight ?

Resistance training and Hypertension : Improving Cardiovascular Health

by A. Manolova | 14 May 2019

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

Biomechanical comparison between Reverse Hyperextension and Back Extension

by P. Debraux | 7 May 2019

Since its introduction to the world of fitness by Louie Simmons, the Reverse Hyperextension is a must-have in many gyms. But what is it worth compared to the "classic" Back extension ?

Effect of HIIT on cancer cells proliferation

by P. Debraux | 24 April 2019

Physical activity is known for its health benefits. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated the advantage of regular sports practice on cancer cells growth. What is the impact of HIIT on the proliferation of colon cancer cells ?

Sports Performance and Antioxidants

by A. Manolova | 17 April 2019

Antioxidant supplementation is often recommended to fight against oxidative stress, one of the presumed responsible for cell aging. However, any sustained physical activity leads to more or less oxidative stress which in turn stimulates various metabolic processes. But is it really bad ? What will be the impact on sports performance ?
