Resistance training and Muscle building


One of the common reasons underlying people’s visit to a gym is building of muscle mass which is mostly achieved through resistance training. Maintaining an optimal muscle mass is beneficial for both men and women. Certain genes decide the extent of muscle mass building and fat reduction in response to exercise.

Among the various health benefits that are assured through regular exercise, muscle building is the much awaited aspect with regard to fitness. Genes decide your extent of muscle mass building and fat reduction in response to exercise, determining the presence/absence of mutations in these genes, that have an influence on your resistance training and muscle building in response to exercise  will help you in targeting your resistance training and aerobic exercises in a better way.
