Blood sample collection options

Finger prick kit (FREE)

All our kits require a finger prick blood sample which is quick and easy to do at home. But if you don't like the idea of squeezing blood out of your finger, here are some other options:

A home visit by a nurse (+£60)

Have a nurse visit you at home to take your blood sample from your vein. The kit will come with everything the nurse needs to do the blood sample collection. Once you've placed your order, we'll be in touch to arrange an appointment.

Visit a clinic (+£45)

You can visit one of our partner clinics to have a nurse take a blood sample from your vein. Select this option at checkout where you can also see which clinics are near you. Once you've placed your order, we'll send you an email to arrange your appointment.

Organise a nurse myself (FREE)

If none of the above options work for you, you can arrange your own medical professional to collect your sample. There is no additional charge for this. Once you've ordered your test, we'll send you everything you and your chosen medical professional will need to collect a sample and post it back to our labs.

You can choose your blood sample collection method in the checkout. Learn more about sample collection.

When to take the test

Benefits of Blood Testing for Weightlifters

Personalised Performance Enhancement

Unleash your weightlifting potential with a comprehensive blood test tailored specifically for male weightlifters. Identify and address any underlying factors hindering your progress, such as low testosterone or iron deficiency, and optimise your training regimen to achieve peak performance.

Improve Recovery & Avoid Injury

Achieve consistent weightlifting success by prioritising effective recovery. Our blood test measures key biomarkers, including cortisol and creatine kinase, that indicate overtraining and the risk of injuries. With these insights, you can make adjustments to your training schedule and recovery practices, minimising the risk of setbacks and maximising your gains.

Optimise Your Nutrition

Proper nutrition is the foundation of weightlifting success. Uncover nutritional deficiencies or imbalances that may be compromising your performance. Our test measures essential nutrients like vitamin D, iron, and vitamin B12, providing personalised guidance to optimise your diet and fuel your training with the right fuel.

Track Your Testosterone

Testosterone is a crucial hormone for muscle growth and strength development, playing a pivotal role in weightlifting performance. Checking testosterone levels provides valuable insights into your ability to build muscle mass, recover from strenuous workouts, and achieve your weightlifting goals.

Track Biomarkers for Sustainable Progress

Continuous monitoring is key to long-term weightlifting success. Our blood test allows you to track your biomarker levels over time, enabling you to identify patterns, make informed adjustments, and optimise your training and nutrition strategies for sustained progress and peak performance.
