DNA swab tests kids' athletic ability

Got $160 and are curious as to what your genetic muscular predisposition and potential are? There's a firm that is offering a kit that lets you swab a DNA sample, which they then test for a particular gene dubbed ACTN-3. This gene correlates with the amount of fast-twitch muscle fibers you have.

It's being targeted at parents, to help determine which sports their children will most likely excel in. However it might also be an interesting tool to use to help bodybuilders determine a more effective program for themselves.
