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.
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?
Anabolic hormones are often said to predict gains because they are pumped into the bloodstream during, and after exercise. Read the article to find out whether it’s a good idea to try to min-max your hormonal responses.
Does muscle protein synthesis predict muscular 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.
