Are you training for a bike race or a marathon?
Did you know that your muscle characteristics is, except for your training, affected by your genes? This means that if two persons with different genotypes exercise and eat exactly the same amount, will evolve muscles and presetation differently. Why?
Well, there's a gene ACTN3, who has control over an important building block found in fast and explosive muscle fibers. If this gene is inactive, it means that your muscles have more endurance custom profile and are better able to use oxygen in energy production. Something that is important when your muscles will work as long as in i.e cycling or marathon. Is it on the other side active, you have better conditions to build explosive muscle which is important in fast sports such as sprint intervals etc.
