Article
Training with low-load exercise performed under blood-flow restriction can augment muscle hypertrophy and maximal strength to a similar extent as the classical high-load strength training method. However, the blood-flow restriction method elicits only minor neural adaptations. In an attempt to maximize training-related gains, we propose using other...
Thesis
Une nouvelle méthode de musculation, appelée méthode 3/7, consistant à réaliser 5 séries en escalier (de 3 à 7 répétitions) avec une charge de 70 % d’une répétition maximale (1RM) espacées d’un temps de récupération court (15 secondes) s’avère plus efficace pour augmenter la force musculaire qu’une méthode classique (à nombre de répétitions constan...

Aim This study investigated the efficacy of a new strength training method on strength gain, hypertrophy, and neuromuscular fatigability. Methods The training exercise consisted of elbow flexion against a load of ~ 70% of one repetition maximal (1RM). A new method (3/7 method) consisting of five sets of an increasing number of repetitions (3 to 7)...

Introduction : A recent study (Laurent et al., 2016) indicated that a strength training method (3/7 method) which consists of 5 sets of an incremental number of repetitions during successive sets (from 3 to 7 repetitions), a moderate load (70% of one repetition maximal (1RM)), and very brief rest interval between sets (≤15 s), induced similar incre...

Introduction: Maximal force of the ankle plantar flexor (PF) muscles plays a key role in postural control (1). The decrease in maximal PF force with ageing should therefore contribute to alter balance steadiness in this age group (4). However, some studies reported only modest effects of a strength training programme on bipedal balance control in o...

Purpose: Recently, dietary supplementation with inorganic nitrate (NO3) has been proposed to endurance athletes to increase their performance. However, it has been suggested that an excess of NO3 might be harmful. The present study analyzed the effect of NO3 supplementation on kidney function. Methods: Thirteen young male subjects performed a 20...
