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 ?
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 ?
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 ?
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 ?
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 ?
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 ?
Whether for shoulder rehabilitation or looking for upper trapezius hypertrophy, the standard shrug exercise may not be the most appropriate for maximizing the recruitment of these muscles.
Resistance training usually involves working against the weight and inertia of the mass to be moved. But what would be the effects on the force-velocity profile if weight and inertia were isolated ?
