Take muscle cramping as an example, something all athletes will deal with at some point. Did you know that your DNA has an effect on your risk of getting muscle cramps?
The AMPD1 gene gives your muscle cells the ability to quickly use energy during time of exertion. Variants of this gene can impact how efficiently this process occurs. Individuals with the inefficient variant (called Adenosine monophosphate deaminase 1 deficiency) may fatigue faster and experience muscle cramping during or after strenuous exercise.
Find out which variant of the AMPD1 gene you have and get expert advice and recommendations with the Optimum Movement and Recovery report.
