DNA Analysis Could Help Improve Your Workout

Have you ever been working out and started wondering if you were doing the correct exercise? Or maybe you asked yourself if the exercise you were doing or planning on doing is even the right one for you? Now there are new studies out there that can actually test your DNA and run tests on it and see which workouts are the best and how to best optimize training. Although this is used for athletes , I’m sure any gym goer can use it to see how to best spend their workout time and how to maximize their body’s potential! This could be a big help for all people trying to get in shape, stay fit, and even athletes that are going for gold medals! New study suggests athletes using DNA-matched training improved their performance almost three times more than those on mismatched programmes, Edward Baran reports. In this video, Greg Rutherford, is the man who is getting his DNA tested. This video was before the 2016 Olympics, in which Rutherford is training for the long jump. He was the reigning long jump gold medalist from the London games and was training to achieve gold once more! The test Rutherford took was called DNA Fit. DNA Fit uses algorithms on your DNA to see how best to train one’s body. Depending on a person’s genes, some workouts might work best for some people than others. This technology would decide which exercises you should be focusing on for training. DNA Fit takes a cheek swab to test and in roughly 10 days the data is given back to you. This detailed report will tell the person what type of training to focus on such as high intensity or low intensity, or even how sensitive their body is too different food groups. These can include carbs, sugar, sodium, alcohol, etc.! Wouldn’t this be amazing! You always hear about how certain things are bad for you but it would be great to see how these different foods or drinks directly affect your body! Studies have actually suggested that using DNA Fit to shift your diet or workout routines, have made quite a difference within athletes. In fact, it has improved their performance by almost 3 times! University of Central Lancashire, a public university in England, conducted the study on 67 young athletes over the span of 8 weeks. The company that did the tests even said that average everyday people who go to the gym could also see their performance as well. This even works well with gym goers who have trained and think they have reached a plateau. This happens when your usual training is not giving the results that it once did and you aren’t getting the same feelings from your workouts. DNA Fit could help with this as it will analyze what’s best for your body and help give the workouts needed to maximize your potential. Check out this great video featuring a different technology that shows how to help achieve better results in an efficient way. This would be a great product if available to everyone for a small price, and especially since results of the test are available in a little more than a weeks’ time! Credit to Reuters.
