Physical Activity and Athletic Performance
Sports genomics and endocrinological testing for exercise through DNA and hormone analysis
DNA and hormone testing is no longer restricted to professional athletes. Good hormone balance means good physical workout and by testing your hormone levels we can quantify how efficient your routines are before your exercise efficiency can be measured in your strength or speed.
As for the relevance of DNA testing, it is known that some people get better results in a short time when doing physical activity while others need more intensity or more time to get the same results. Genomic research has identified relevant genes related to physical activity requirements. There are also genetic variations that tell us what kind of sports activities (endurance or sprint) is more favorable.
