Can muscle fiber type composition (% fast vs slow) predict injuries? This group found jr & premier league soccer players with mostly FAST fibers were 5x likely to experience hamstring injuries. Interesting, but many limitations; temper interpretations. pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/3451…

Calorie deficit & gainz. New meta-analysis & regression suggests: 1. ~500 kcal/day = CAN'T gain new lean muscle, but CAN still get very strong! 2. >500 kcal/day deficit = probably can't preserve lean mass Just guidelines, of course. Body mass matters. pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/3462…

NEW: The hypothalamus controls systemic aging. This study show that aging is preceded by entropic speeding of GnRH pulses in mice. Lowering GnRH pulse frequency by castration or optogenetically slows aging and promotes longevity. nature.com/articles/s43587-0…
