The Gamblers Gene.

Do you:
- Love gambling?
- Taking extreme risk in business & personal life?
- Find what others find 'exciting' very mundane?
- Find the 9-5 lifestyle a literal death sentence?
- Hate being in 1 place?

THE Dopamine D4 receptor gene (DRD4-7R)

Dopamine is a chemical that binds to receptors in your nerves.

The variant DRD4-7R causes less binding of Dopamine.

Therefore what others find extremely rewarding, someone with this defect will see it as mundane.

Varying studies find that ~15-20% of people have this genetic mutation.

In previous times when extreme risk would have led to death, it has also likely been the reason why Captain Cook, Ragnar Lothbrok went on insane expeditions.

Taran came to me as he felt completely lost when it came to training specifically for Muay Thai & Boxing.

He was also playing football, so had a variety of goals that were being limited by a nagging knee pain.

- Having to be extremely creative with workouts
- Having to switch between home & gym based workouts week to week.

This ensures training is having the carryover necessary to improve performance.

In just 2 blocks of programming Taran's saw significant jumps in sprint speed and punching force.
