Which types of exercise are best for YOU?

Whether you’re a professional athlete, weekend warrior, or hit the gym daily, it’s essential to know the kinds of training that are most effective for you in achieving your fitness goals. Your genes help determine your muscle-type, and knowing your muscles-type gives you the knowledge you need to choose the exercises that are most optimal. The DNA test for Muscle Properties analyses the ACTN3 gene to help determine if you have a predisposition for building up explosiveness in your muscles or whether endurance training suits you better.

This unique test provides information about the way your muscles react to exercise so that you can enjoy optimal training. The DNA test for Muscle Properties identifies if your genes make you more suitable for short-impact bursts of exercise or whether you are more suited to endurance training. This test gives you the understanding and guidance to know how best to optimise physical training based on how your muscles react to certain types of activities.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for fitness! Our genes control muscle development, which means that exercise and diet that is beneficial for one person may not be for another. The DNA test for Muscle Properties helps determine your best choice, based on your unique genetics. However, while you may wish to engage and focus on the most effective exercise for muscle development, it is important to include varied exercise to maximise health benefits.

The Science

The Science

The Science behind the DNA Test for Muscle Properties

The test looks at 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. This heightens abilities for sports that require explosive reactions from the muscles. The second variant of the gene provides a muscle profile that is better suited to endurance training. If you are a carrier of the gene variant—meaning that you do not produce the α-actinin-3 protein—this might mean that your muscle profile is better suited to exercise that requires endurance.
