    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.

    Impact of resistance training on arterial stiffness

    Arterial stiffness is an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease, associated with an increased risk of mortality. If general physical activity seems to reduce it, what about resistance training?

  • physical activity, depression, science, prevention, science, sport

    Physical activity could reduce the onset of depression

    Depression affects approximately 280 million people worldwide. Physical activity is often prescribed for depressed people with moderate to large benefits depending on the study. But could physical activity act as a preventive measure and reduce the risk of developing depression?

    Neuromuscular fatigue and recovery after strength and power training

    In addition to strength and muscle gains, resistance training induces muscular and nervous fatigue. It is often said and written that it is more difficult and longer to recover nervously than muscularly. But is this really the case?

  • rest interval, volume, training, fitness, mass, hypertrophy, strength, duration, science sport

    Impact of rest interval duration on training volume

    The training volume is very important. However, the fatigue accumulated during the first and subsequent sets has a negative impact on it. What impact will longer rest periods have on training volume?

  • deficit, deficiency, caloric, energetic, muscle, gains, fat loss, resistance training, fitness, physical activity, sport, health, training, science

    Impact of energy deficiency on resistance training gains

    Energy deficiency impacts anabolic hormone production and protein synthesis, which is usually accompanied by a loss of lean body mass. But what impact would a caloric deficit created through diet have on responses to resistance training?

  • biomechanics, running, obesity, overweight, children, health, problem, joint, kinetics, kinematics, force, moments, stress

    Biomechanics of running in overweight/obese children

    Rightly or wrongly, running is one of the most recommended forms of exercise for reducing obesity and improving general health. But what are the biomechanical characteristics and associated risks of this activity in overweight/obese children?

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.
