While strenuous exercise can provide a leaner, fitter physique, it could also potentially disrupt one’s sex drive, a new study warns.
A team from University of North Carolina observed that men with more intense exercise programs may have a lower libido than those who have lighter workouts.
Male Exercise And Sex Drive
This is among the first to probe the link between men’s exercise and their sex lives, as previous studies centered on women.
“Exposure to higher levels of chronic intense and greater durations of endurance training on a regular basis are significantly associated with a decreased libido scores in men,” the authors wrote, recommending doctors seeing male patients for sex-related disorders to take into account the level of the patient’s endurance training.
