Resistance Exercise Reverses Aging in Human Skeletal Muscle

The following study is one of my favorites to discuss. The name says it all and is extremely powerful. Usually, scientists are very measured in their wording. You may see a study with a name such as this:

“…is there any correlation as to how much strength gains(percentage gains) does it take to say gain a pound of muscle ie. have you observed any rough relationship that it takes roughly X percentage gains in strength to put a pound of muscle.” Read More...
