What The Science of Fitness is About
Our mission at The Science of Fitness (SCI-FIT) is to help you reach your goals using fitness research.
We write review articles, create study collections, interview researchers, and analyze studies.
You will find plain language summaries at the top of every article, helping you understand the science without having to be an expert.
We simplify the research and make it accessible.
The Science of Detraining: How Long You Can Take a Break from the Gym Before You Lose Muscle Mass, Strength, and Endurance
In this article we answer how long it takes us to detrain (lose strength, conditioning, and muscle), and which strategies we can use to prevent it.
Do you think overtraining exists? How would you become overtrained? Does it happen slowly or quickly? Are you at risk of OT? Read the article, listen to the podcast, and watch the video to find out!
I think most of us have seen what can happen to the human body as it ages. Check this article out to find out how aging affects muscle mass and health. The article contains research-based recommendations from 60+ studies and reviews
Lauded as the source of all gains, mTOR has a big rep to live up to. In this article, we’re going to answer the following questions:
– What are the functions of mTOR?
– Can mTOR activation lead to hypertrophy?
– Are there situations where mTOR activation does not lead to gains?
The goal of Sci-Fit is to review and share scientific research in the fields of fitness, nutrition, and sports.
We aim to develop the logical reasoning and critical thinking skills of our readers.
The articles on Sci-Fit are created through collaboration between different contributors.
Our review articles cover a large number of studies, and our claims are supported by scientific studies.
Sci-Fit is run without external funding by other companies, individuals, or organizations.
All our study analyses, methodology, and conflicts of interest are freely available.
