Men more dependent on exercise than women

Women may worry more about their weight, but it’s men who are more likely to become hooked on exercise, a study shows. College dudes are more likely to exercise to excess — and get tense and irritable if they were deprived of their workouts. The research among 408 university students also found that men who worked out for the benefit of feeling better physically and mentally — rather than to look better or improve their performance — were more likely to become dependent on the need to exercise excessively.
