Op-Ed: The role of your genes in muscle & strength gains

I want to look like a swimmer, so I will go swimming. I want to look like Christiano Ronaldo, so I go and play soccer. I want to look like a runway model, so I walk the runway. The last one makes no sense, right? So why should the other two examples be any different? Humans love these straight forward heuristics. That's because our brain loves simple cause and effect relationships that don´t require thinking hard and in turn, don´t burn a lot of energy. Kahneman & Tversky received the Nobel Prize for that observation. Learn here why we suffer these cognitive biases when we think about fitness as well and how our genes determine our results from strength training.

So, no matter how young or old, amateur or elite golf player you are, do strength training to enjoy improved posture, swing and endurance on and off the golf course.
