Impact of Resistance Training in Hypoxic and Normoxic Conditions on Muscle Growth and Strength

The extensive research study by Benavente Bardera delves deeply into resistance training under different oxygen levels, commonly referred to as hypoxia and normoxia, and seeks to fill the gaps in existing knowledge on this subject. With a multifaceted approach involving seven separate experiments, the research aims complexities surrounding the effects of such training on muscle hypertrophy and strength, considering both acute and chronic scenarios.

Drop Sets vs Traditional Sets for Muscle Hypertrophy

When it comes to muscle training for hypertrophy, there are several methods employed by fitness enthusiasts. Among these, drop sets have gained popularity as a time-efficient technique. This article delves into a systematic review and meta-analysis that compares the impact of drop sets and traditional sets on muscle hypertrophy.

Variable vs. Conventional Resistance Training: A Review

Resistance training is a cornerstone of fitness, with various methodologies and techniques being explored to maximize muscle growth. One such method, variable resistance training, has been touted for its potential benefits. But how does it stack up against conventional resistance training? Let's delve into a recent systematic review to find out.

Carnosol: A Potential Tool for Human Skeletal Muscle Hypertrophy

Carnosol's chemical structure and a rosemary leaf

A recent study reveals the potential of carnosol, a compound found in rosemary leaf extract, in inducing hypertrophy in human skeletal muscle cells (4). The research shows that carnosol mediates its effects by inhibiting E3 ubiquitin ligase MuRF1 and the proteasome, two elements involved in protein degradation in muscles. This discovery has significant implications for the treatment or prevention of skeletal muscle atrophy.
