Research Review Summary

Towards an improved understanding of proximity to failure in resistance training and its influence on skeletal muscle hypertrophy, neuromuscular fatigue, muscle damage and perceived discomfort: a scoping review

Key takeaways:
  • There is no scientific consensus on what proximity to failure means
  • Training to failure seems to be no better than not training to failure regarding muscle hypertrophy
  • Training to failure can accumulate negative short term results like increased neuromuscular fatigue and increased recovery time


Age related muscle anabolic resistance: inevitable or preventable

Key takeaways:
  • Anabolic resistance is a problem that affects a quickly growing portion of the population
  • We can manage it with resistance training and protein intake manipulation
  • It seems that a protein intake of 1.6g/kg/day to 2.2 g/kg/day maximizes muscle hypertrophy and strength gains in resistance trained adults
