    Resistance training and high blood pressure: Lifting heavier is good for your health

    Current official recommendations include moderate to high intensity weight training (50-80% of 1RM), targeting large muscle groups, at least twice a week but how do we know the impact of load intensity on hypertension?

    Non-communicable diseases & mortality: Impact of resistance training

    Regular resistance training increases and maintains muscle strength and mass. But does it have an impact on the risk of non-communicable diseases? What is the optimal dose of weight training to achieve significant health gains? And can we expect additional benefits from combining resistance training with cardiovascular endurance activity?

  • HIIT, circuit, training, fitness, performance, cardiorespiratory fitness, science, sport

    HIIT circuit: what impact on neuromuscular performance and cardiorespiratory fitness?

    Although HIIT circuits combine cardiovascular and neuromuscular demands, it is not yet clear what the real fitness and health benefits are for practitioners.

    Master Athletes and Longevity

    SIRT1 may play a crucial role in telomere protection. Some studies have shown that Master athletes have higher levels of SIRT1 than their sedentary counterparts. But is there a link between SIRT1 levels, insulin secretion and telomere length?

  • high blood pressure, hypertension, isometric, training, cardiovascular, disease, health, heart, mortality

    High Blood Pressure : Isometric training for cardiovascular health

    In addition to the pharmacological treatments, physical activity (endurance or muscle strengthening) is often recommended for the prevention, treatment and control of high blood pressure. But how effective is isometric training in reducing blood pressure ?

  • muscle failure, training, fitness, hypertrophy, science, strength, maximal, sport

    Strength, hypertrophy & muscle failure : It's load-dependent

    Because it would allow the complete recruitment of high-treshold motor units, training until muscle failure often appears to be an ideal solution for maximising gains. However, with the same volume of training, what are the benefits with light and heavy loads ?

  • sleep, performance, science, elite, athlete, recovery, training

    Sleep requirements of elite athletes

    Sleep is essential to our proper functioning, both physiologically and psychologically. For an adult, it is generally recommended to sleep between 7 and 9 hours per night. However, these guidelines are very broad and do not consider the inter-individual differences in the sleep needs of each athlete.

The site of scientific information about sport Training and physical activity

We are happy to welcome you on the brand new english version of our educationnal website dedicated to sport and physical activity. Since 2011, our website was a french constant growing resource for experts and people passionate about learning sport sciences and aiming to stay up-to-date. You can find out what contain the sections of the website through the different presentations below.

Feel free to subscribe to our newsletter to receive a weekly summary of news from the site. You can also follow us on our Facebook page to stay in touch with us. Sci-Sport.com will evolve in the coming months. At first, an article will be published each week. With the time, this rate will increase. And this content will be constantly free and in an open access to all.

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 is available in french on Amazon.fr or FNAC.com.
