A gene for energy production

AMPD is an enzyme that plays a role in anaerobic capacity and leads to fast accumulation of lactate after sprint exercises. We test for a genetic variation (AMPD1) that has been linked to different levels of this enzyme. One variation leads to lower levels of AMPD and has been found less frequently in strength/power athletes.


You can find more information about the AMPD1 gene in our member area at where you can also find your results and what this means for you after your DNA has been analyzed by us. Head over to the shop to order your Fitnessgenes DNA analysis and genetic training system
