    Exercise and Type 2 Diabetes: Impact on Drug Therapy

    Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disease that affects more than 285 million people worldwide. To fight it, glucose-lowering medications are often prescribed, but they are associated with a lower quality of life. Could physical activity do the trick without it?

    Squat vs. Hip Thrust: Muscle strength and hypertrophy

    Hip Thrust succeeded Squat as the king exercise to glutes hypertrophy. However, all the studies that have shown the superiority of Hip Thrust have been based on electromyography and none of them has verified the impact on actual muscle hypertrophy. So is Hip Thrust really worth it?

    Impact of training volume on muscle strength and hypertrophy

    Among the variables to take into account in resistance training, volume is one of the most important to obtain results in both strength and hypertrophy. However, how do you know if a practitioner is not doing too much? And is there a benefit to always wanting to do more?

    Impact of training frequency on muscle strength and hypertrophy

    Many bodybuilders train each muscle group 1-2 times a week. Indeed, Split is often seen as an advanced way of training since the emphasis is on training volume. But what would be the impact of increasing the training frequency of a muscle group instead?

    Is there a link between gray matter and cardiorespiratory fitness?

    Dementia is a global epidemic with an estimated 50 million people worldwide. It is generally characterized by cerebral atrophy, certain areas being more affected than others. Some suggest that physical activity could slow this atrophy. But is there a link between physical activity level and brain volume?

    Impact of running on mortality risk

    Physical activity reduces the risk of mortality. Running is one of the most popular activities in the world because it is easily adaptable to everyone's level and can be practiced almost anywhere. But what is the impact of running on mortality and is there a dose-response relationship ?

    Association between sedentary behaviour and mortality : impact of physical activity

    Long periods of sitting are associated with increased chronic disease risk and higher mortality. However, what is the impact of physical activity on these risks ?

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.
