Rabbit hole on Genetics & VO2 Max Testing with Coach Debbie

How can your genetics help personalize your longevity program?

Identifying genetic variants associated with VO2 max (maximal oxygen uptake) can provide insights into an individual’s potential response to various training regimens and help tailor exercise programs for improved performance. While there isn’t a single definitive list of genetic SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) that directly determine the best way to improve VO2 max, several genes have been implicated in aerobic fitness and endurance performance.

References: VO2 Max Protocols – but let’s test and stop guessing what those zones are for you right now, as well as what your VO2 Max is now so you collect baseline data

Longer intervals 2-5 minutes at highest work load you can sustain for that time (with proper recovery in between sets)

4 x 4 ntervals (zone 4/zone 1)

1 minute on (zone 4/5), 1 minute off (Zone 1) x 5 rounds

3-5 minute repeats (zone 4/zone 1)
