The health and wellness industry is transitioning into an age of customization. Athletes of all types, from professionals to amateurs, and weekend warriors to fitness moms, are learning that DNA holds the key to optimal performance. Every single one of us is unique, so why shouldn’t our nutrition and training plans cater to our specific needs? You’re right, they should.
For example, Eric is looking to bulk up so he strictly follows Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine workout routines consistently for months. This does not guarantee that his body will respond in the same way as Jackman’s – to the endless bicep curls and heavy lifting. Instead, it may actually do more harm than good. With an Athletic Genetix DNA test Eric learned that power lifting with less weight and more reps stimulated his muscles to become bigger and stronger. The Athletic Genetix DNA test not only reveals what type of training your body will be most receptive to but will point out any intolerances you have to food that might be causing unnecessary inflammation in your body.
When you’re breaking down your muscles, fueling becomes more important than ever. If you do it properly, you’ll have enough energy to recover, rebuild, and still get back in for your next workout. But we’re not just talking about chicken breast, brown rice, and protein shakes. This is the “general nutrition” that most people like to follow because they see others doing it too. By eating a low-calorie, high-protein diet, you won’t see any explosive or noticeable growth. All you’ll be doing is saving some of your muscle mass that you have already built instead of building more.
We recommend more nutrient-dense foods to grow those muscles bigger. 
Eat as many fruits and vegetables as you can, try unprocessed plant-based carbohydrates, including quinoa and starchy vegetables like squash or sweet potato. Good lean proteins include beans, lentils, fish, nuts, seeds, and eggs. Yes, chicken breast is still fine but don’t confuse a cutting diet, which are often low in calories and high in protein, with a muscle-building diet, which includes a fair portion of carbohydrates.
