Step away from the treadmill: research has found that strenuous exercise can lead to lower sex drives in men.
Researchers from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill asked men about their sexual behaviour, health and exercise habits.
They then asked more than 1,000 athletes the same questions.
The results were clear. Those who had moderate or light exercise routines were more likely to report having moderate or high libidos than those whose exercise routines were more intense or prolonged.
The researchers said this could be because of lower testosterone levels, or simply being too tired to take their push-ups home from the gym.
And as the news spread, people had the obvious response:
Yes!!!! Finally some good news! https://t.co/04UJVA6One — Judd Apatow (@Judd Apatow)
