Anyone familiar with it?
There’s a hypothesis I would like to test…
I wonder if the percentage how many world class athletes/ powerlifters have the aggressive/ “warrior” version of the MAOA gene compared to the rest of the populace?
Not sure this is something that could easily be tested without major cooperation.
A lot of people talk about genetic limitations… This being a genetic aspect, I wonder if having this particular version of the gene is conducive to bigger lifts… I mean, the more I think about it, less averse to taking risks, rage, aggression, are all pretty common things that we all have, and most of us have worked on harnessing it or controlling it, finding a healthy outlet (like lifting).
What ya think? Am I completely off track or might there be some merit to this thought?
