DON’T TRAIN HARDER, TRAIN SMARTER
Sports performance is a combination of multiple factors: genetics, training, nutrition, motivation, advances in equipment and other environmental factors. Up to 66% of the athlete characteristics are explained by genetic factors.
Sports genomics is a relatively new discipline that has focused on the study of genetic markers associated with athletic performance. DNA sequence variations have been associated with endurance capacity, muscle performance, predisposition to injuries, body mass composition, and psychological aptitude.
