Increased Self-Understanding Through DNA Testing
Is your body better suited to explosive exercises, or would endurance training be preferable? This test gives you the answers, offering insights into the genetic properties of your muscles. Your muscle development is determined by your individual genetic make-up; this means that even if two people undergo the same exercise and diet regimen, their muscles and athletic performance can develop in completely different ways, depending on their genotype.
With just a simple cheek swab, you can find out which variant of the ACTN3 genome you possess. This information provides a valuable and unique insight into your body's ideal fitness conditions, and provides important guidance on how to best design your exercise routine. With this knowledge, you can shape your regimen with the optimal amount of repetitions, intensity, and recovery periods.
Fast, Safe and Easy
Everything you need from the test is contained in the package that we ship discreetly directly to your door. Simply take the test at home, and submit the prepaid shipment to our top quality laboratory for DNA analysis.
Within just five business days of when we receive it, we’ll post the results of the test on our website, along with information that provides a detailed understanding of what those results mean for you.
The results we provide are at least 99.5% accurate, and are just as safe and rigorous as if you had performed the test with a doctor.
This test is performed completely anonymously. Each sample contains a unique code that you use to retrieve your results. Your test responses cannot be linked to your personal information.
More about the results:
The test provides results on which variant of the ACTN3 you are carrying.
A variant of the ACTN3 gene gives the ability to product the α-actinin-3 protein, which is part of building up fast muscle fibers, which heightens abilities for sports that require explosiveness from the muscles.
The second variant of the gene provides a muscle profile that is better suited to endurance. If you are a carrier of the gene variant which means that you do not produce the α-actinin-3 protein, this might mean that your muscle profile is better suited to endurance, and thus better at using acid to manufacture energy. This affects the energy processes that are used in training. This might mean that you require less time to recover before the next training session.
