Queensland University of Technology claims that Esports Players are Healthier than General Population
The study was conducted over 1400 gamers from 65 countries.
If you are a gamer, most likely you have been told at some point in your life that you spend too many hours sitting at a single place, disconnected from the real world and whatnot. However, a recent study from the Queensland University of Technology claims that Esports players are up to 21 per cent healthier than the general population.
The study was conducted over 1400 gamers that came from 65 countries. It also notes that Esports players smoke and drink less compared to that of general people. Fitness among elite gamers indicates that physical exercise could have an impact on Esports success, researchers claim.
Michael Trotter, the lead researcher says, "As part of their training regime, elite esports athletes spend more than an hour per day engaging in physical exercise as a strategy to enhance gameplay and manage stress."
As the top esports players are in physical activity, the ones who completely neglect to do so contributed with four per cent of being morbidly obese relative to that of that general people.
Michael continues to suggest that exercise should be the priority of the players and esports therapists.
"This will mean that in the future, young gamers will have more reason and motivation to be physically active,” adds Michael Trotter.
Make sure you contribute a few moments from a day towards exercise for a healthier lifestyle.
