Influence of Genetic Factors on Responses to Exercise Training and Sport

Health and fitness can be affected by many genetic and non-genetic factors. Genetic factors influence how people are at the present time and how they respond to external stimuli or changes in environment (example, exercise training). There are high, average, and low responders to training, as well as adverse and non-responders. The speed of change and the extent to which changes occur are affected by genetic factors. This lecture gives a basic introduction to the field of genetics and how it applies to training and to sport.
