How personalized workouts can help you train smarter, not harder
The Genetics of Endurance and Muscle Building
As you may already know, some people can build muscles easier than others. For example, a friend of yours spends the same time as you at the gym – sometimes less – with both of you trying to build muscle doing push-ups. Your friend is able to build more muscle than you in a shorter amount of time. Genetics can play a significant role in these outcomes. No need to despair yet, this does not mean you will never grow your own.
Genetics and Fitness
Let’s take a look at some of the fitness traits that can be affected by your DNA. Note that while these factors can be influenced by certain genes this does not mean that your results are set in stone. Knowing what works according to your genetic makeup via fitness DNA tests will be an advantage in optimizing your workouts.
Hypertrophy, commonly known as the ability to grow something bigger or larger, of the muscle is the body’s ability to build muscles in any given amount of time. Resistance training such as weights and core exercises will almost always improve the size of your muscles, but just how fast you can build them can be directly linked to your DNA.
Using LifeDNA’s DNA fitness reports, this section will tell you how well your muscle growth will respond to certain exercises.
DNA fitness test for muscle damage and exercise
No one wants to be in pain but as the saying goes, “no pain no gain.” Certain types of workouts, depending on your body’s abilities, can cause strain on your muscles. Being able to tolerate the pain has its benefits, and pushing that tolerance will also push your body to new limits. Now, while trying out how far you can go with every workout is well and good, listening to your body is even more important.
Your fitness DNA test can tell you your muscles’ indicators of pain tolerance, the probability of causing damage, and how much time you need to rest and recover after working out.
