- Do I have a genetic predisposition for sports injuries?
- How do I get the best out of a training?
A unique scientific insight that deals with the following subjects:
Performance and training
What do I have the most genetic predisposition for: strength or endurance sports? And what does that mean for your endurance running performance? We will examine this on the basis of your DNA. We will also tell you how things stand with your oxygen intake. What is your capacity, for example, for maximum oxygen intake and can you increase this even further? And what is the situation with your muscles? What does your DNA say about your muscle fibres? Have you got a predisposition for fast-twitch or slow-twitch muscle fibres and you can you best adapt your training to that? Finally, we will also look at your maximum performance? Have you got a capacity for going extra deep? We are happy to examine this!
Susceptibility to injury
Injuries through overexertion and repetitive movement are often painful and very inconvenient. Especially because you will generally be unable to do anything for a couple of weeks. Based on your DNA analysis, we can tell you the extent to which you have a genetic predisposition for tendon injuries, such as ligaments and Achilles tendon.
