Study: Extreme Weightlifting Connected To Psychological Problems
A new study has connected weight lifting to psychological problems among young men.
The study has been published in the North American Journal of Psychology.
The study, from Dr. Frederick Grieve of the Department of Psychology at Western Kentucky University surveyed 100 male college students. The study found symptoms of depression among those who lifetd weights more often.
Dr. Grieve said those who had muscle dysmorphia – a hyper-vigilance for muscle mass combined with patterns of extreme weight lifting and possible steroid use – were more likely to elevate exercise over social activities, leading to isolation.
He also said the self-image of those people was likely to have an abundance of body dissatisfaction.
