Thank you for your interest in Athlete Blood Test. For the past 10 years we have been passionate about helping athletes achieve their max performance. We really hope we can help you as well. Below you will find some of the most commonly asked questions about blood testing for athletes.
Athlete Blood Test (ABT) is a blood testing service specifically designed for athletes. We look at the most important biomarkers for athletic performance. We use your biomarker profile along with information unique to you, to make actionable recommendation geared toward performance optimization.
Simply locate the nearest Labcorp to you here , enter your address or zip code and select “routine lab work” as your service. Once you have your location, present to the lab anytime during business hours, walk-ins are welcome. Don’t forget to bring your lab form that will be attached to an email after your online order is processed.
Our blood panels and analysis focus solely on athletic performance, whereas your medical provider uses bloodwork to identify health issues.

We typically recommend to start with a Gold Panel to use for your baseline measurement. If you are also interested in genetic testing then the Platinum Panel is right for you. After your initial test we will make a recommendation for which panel we think you should test next. Most athletes follow up with the Bronze Panel for periodic monitoring with an annual Gold Panel, but this differs by individual.
Reports are typically delivered to clients within 7 business days of having their labs drawn.
Each one has an individual schedule, but normally athletes are tested in the off-season to obtain baseline levels. The baseline panel is something that we compare our findings to for the rest of the season.
The next test is usually done after the first big ramp up in training. This is done to see how that training volume has influenced physiology in comparison to base line panels.
Testing is also recommended after each big training block and before key races or competitions. Four to six weeks before peak competition can usually give an athlete enough time to take any action if needed or provide reassurance their bodies are handling training well.
Sample testing schedule:
- Gold Panel during off-season to obtain baseline
- Bronze panel after first big block of training
- Repeat Bronze Panel after each big block
- Gold panel 4 to 6 weeks prior to peak competition
