Due to the significance of systematic reviews and meta-analyses, we’ve put together a list and short take-home message of many recent systematic reviews and meta-analyses so you can cut straight to the chase of the results.
There are a lot of misconceptions about strength training for women. This article clearly lays out what the research says about male vs. female strength and muscle growth, and the inferences we can draw from those findings.
Bodybuilders preach the importance of the “mind-muscle connection.” However, when you’re actually putting full effort into your reps, does that focus on the target muscle actually affect muscle activation?
In Part 2 of this concurrent training series, we will cover the molecular exercise physiology of concurrent training and provide some application for concurrent programming.
In all but one fringe case, knowing about the labeling error on foods is fun trivia, but doesn’t actually affect the utility of tracking calorie intake in the real world.
Before discussing periodization, you should have a thorough understanding of what the research says. In this article, we provide a comprehensive, quantitative overview of the periodization research.
This article (the first part in a two-part series) provides a thorough but accessible overview of the concurrent training research.
Squatting and deadlifting for high reps can certainly wear you out. But does that mean lifting can actually improve your conditioning as much as traditional cardio modalities?
The most surprising finding of this analysis was that no training variable meaningfully predicted injury risk, including weekly training volume, per-lift training frequency, or proportion of training with loads in excess of 85% of 1RM.
Periodization is popular and almost universally accepted, but its history and theoretical underpinnings aren’t as straightforward as many believe.
