Our attention this week is on another gene that is found as part of our algorithm at My DNA Coach, which has been shown to enhance response to a resistance training programme.

BDKRB2 Genotype

Effect

TT

Contributes to a positive response to endurance training, especially with regards to muscle efficiency.

CT

A more moderate form of TT – contributes to a good response to endurance training.

CC

Contributes to a reduced response to endurance training, and so might be well placed to undertake more power-based activities.
