GENETICS FOR TRAINERS: Decoding the Sports Genes Genetics For Trainers (G4T) presents the major current concepts in genetics and decrypts genes' role on performance, recovery and risk of injuries. Written by and for strength and conditioning coach. G4T is a must read for anyone working in the athletic field.
An athletic phenotype is a complex manifestation of many genetic and environmental exposures. Some genes have a direct effect on physical attributes, whereas others have an indirect effect via gene-gene or gene-environment interaction.
A very own athletic performance excellence therefore would result from firstly choosing the right sport according to one's genetic profile and secondly, adapting the right training, nutrition and environmental interactions to optimally express your inherited genes.
It is a contemporary notion that prescription exercise regimes can potentially be tailored to the genotype of the individual.
Genetic for Trainers First edition introduces 30 genes over 190+ studies.
