Athletic performance test of strength, speed and endurance
Nowadays it is possible to investigate an individual’s genetic prerequisite to aspects of athletic strength, speed and endurance. This genetic test has been especially designed for the serious sports enthusiast to study two genes that are connected with athletic performance: ACE and ACTN3. ACE influences cardiovascular performance and adaptation to physical strain, ACTN3 regulates muscle performance.Identification of ACE and ACTN3 gene variants allows to determine whether the individual is successful in sprint and strength sports (sprint distances, hurling and throwing sport, bodybuilding etc), endurance sports (running, skiing, rowing, triathlon etc) or whether the person is a so-called universal sportsman.
In addition to genetic factors, success of a sportsman depends on several factors as nutrition, living and training conditions, psychological factors. It is easier to choose the most suitable sport for you, if you are aware of your hereditary prerequisites. The best results are achieved by those who does not only have favourable environment conditions and sufficient motivation, but also has the most suitable gene set for the specific sport.
