Genetics: Proclivity to Power vs. Endurance

Nathan, I think you might get as excited about this as I just did. Check it out: http://www.gtpersonal.com.au/sports_performance.php. This is a genetic test from an Australian company that will (theoretically) determine whether you have a genetic muscular proclivity towards power/explosiveness or endurance events. Apparently the ACTN3 gene that we inherit from both parents is the genetic determinant for this kind of thing. Holy crap. And its a mouth swab test, so it’s non invasive and available for $200 Australian. I am currently jizzing my pants.
