I took my initial swab test with Chris in November, it was a simple mouth swab that was totally painless. Shortly after the test Chris mailed me to tell me he had the results from the test, Chris explained the results and provided me with the documents outlining the results. For my genetics Chris explained that I needed to concentrate on lower reps and higher weights focusing more on strength and power, we also adjusted my rest periods and rest days along with some nutritional alterations. I proceeded with the new program during November and December and gained a huge amount strength in particular with thigh extension and Lat pulldown machines which I maxed and had to attached weights to! Also my leg press, hack squat and bent over row weights went far beyond anything I had done previously. I am now incorporating more power and strength rep ranges in to my training protocols now throughout the year, I believe that it has me built thicker and more muscle in my back and quads certainly.
I think if I had known that high reps and reduced rest isn’t preferential for me I could have saved a lot of wasted time over the years and just concentrated on what worked for my body.
Overall a great test and it does really work!
