Oxygen Flow Testing

Endurance performance relies on receiving sufficient oxygen to our working muscles and an adequate "fuel supply" from a healthy diet in order to support sustained activity.

You can affect your oxygen flow with daily activity, graduated exercise and weight training.

Maximum Strength

By understanding your muscle fibre makeup, you can choose the style of exercises that your body may respond best to.

You can affect your maximum strength with resistance bands, free weights and bodyweight exercises.

Recovery Speed

The time that muscles need to recover is influenced by DNA. Muscle soreness is a result of inflammation produced by a particular gene.

Some people produce more inflammation in their muscles as a result of exercises than others, meaning that different people may need to take a different amount of time to recover.

Trainability

Endurance trainability refers to how well your body is likely to adapt as a response to this type of training chronically. This will give you an indication as to what potential degree you can improve your endurance performance as a result across sessions.

Trainability

Blood Vessel Response

Endurance can be defined as the ability to withstand and benefit from prolonged exercise. Many factors go into this, including the body's blood flow.

Blood, rich in oxygen, will fuel your muscles to continue working efficiently. This means they can work effectively for a long period of time. Muscles that do not have a good oxygen supply will fatigue quickly and recover more slowly.

Blood Vessel Response

Tendon Durability

Tendons are tissues that connect our muscles to our bones and facilitate movement. They are made up of collagen fibres and get their strength from the dense, organized arrangement of these fibres.

Genetics can predispose us to have a stronger or weaker arrangement of collagen in our tendons which enables us to handle this stress more or less effectively. As such, genetics can make us susceptible to tendon injuries as a result of being physically active.
