This one found a lower resting heart rate, a surrogate of physical fitness, and higher levels of self-reported physical activity in leisure time during middle-age to be associated with a lower long-term risk of hip fractures.
The findings of this one does not support the hypothesis that the health-beneficial effect of regular exercise training are linked to changes in haemostasis or fibrinolysis in patients with stable coronary artery disease.
This one in baboons finds that maternal obesity during pregnancy may lead to early tissue metabolic impairment in the liver and muscle of the offspring, giving rise to the dysregulation of key metabolic pathways that are involved in carbohydrate and amino acid metabolism.
- That is to say, highly active individuals with a high TV viewing time were still at higher risk of COVID-19 mortality compared to highly active individuals with a low TV viewing time, but this elevated risk was no longer statisticallly significant following adjustment for BMI.
- The risk observed for the combination of a low physical activity level and a high TV viewing time was particularly pronounced and corresponded to a greater than two fold higher risk when compared to the highly active, low TV viewing time reference group.
So I guess I should stress that even though they do make some sense (drop sets = more stress => more need to deload in the longer term => it evens out in the macrocycle) it may be wise to interpret these results with caution.
This systematic review and meta-analysis suggests that both drop set and traditional resistance training exercise are viable options for promoting muscular adaptations, as they have similar effects on muscular strength and hypertrophy.
Increased visceral fat area to skeletal muscle mass ratio (VSR) is positively associated with the risk of cardiometabolic diseases in a Chinese natural population: A cross-sectional study (open access)
This one found an increased visceral fat area to skeletal muscle mass ratio to be associated with the risk of cardiometabolic diseases, with the effect being stronger in women, in Chinese adults with a mean age of ~45 years.

"...we conclude that RE increases decorin within the ECM which is then able to bind to and subsequently decrease the amount of myostatin..."

This systematic review and meta-analysis suggests that sleep duration in children is likely to be negatively affected by total sugar intake, while in both children and adults, it is likely to be negatively affected by sugar-sweetened beverage intake.
How do cells regulate changes in protein expression levels upon external stimulation?
Happy to share our new preprint addressing this question, by super-talented PhD student Benjamin Martin

This one found smoking, arterial stiffness, lung function, fat mass, pulse pressure, and HDL-c to be associated with V'O2max, explaining 21% of its variation, in individuals aged 50 years living in Sweden.
This review suggests that resistance training can be beneficial in patients with multiple sclerosis in terms of ameliorating fatigue, increasing functionality and mobility, and affecting key players of the immune system, ultimately contributing to their overall well-being.
