Male runners do their utmost to impress women

Now it's an extra step: men who train with female partners, put themselves in harder to impress them through & # 39; sexual display strategy & # 39;

  • Men paired with a woman averaged 5.85 mph; while those with a same-sex partner went at 4.86 mph
  • Even men in a stable relationship set up a show to impress their female partner
  • Single men urged themselves the most, according to scientists at the University of East Carolina

Men who train with a female training partner not only accelerate their walking speed, they also travel a greater distance than normal, researchers have found.

On average they walk one and a half kilometers faster and they spend much longer with a woman.

For the study, male volunteers were linked to a female alien for training.

The researchers noted that men, irrespective of their relationship status, gave in to a "sexual display strategy & # 39; while exercising with a woman.

Single men, they found it, pushed themselves the hardest. & # 39; When people are aware that potential partners observe their performances, they can change their behavior – consciously or unconsciously – to make themselves more attractive to these people. Michael Baker from the University of East Carolina in the US.

The scientists discovered that men who were accompanied by a woman walked an average of 5.85 mph, while those with a same-sex partner did 4.86 mph.

"People who trained with a partner of the opposite sex traveled on average 2.46 miles while those with same-sex partners traveled 1.87 miles," said Dr. Baker.

Even men in a stable relationship set up a show to impress their female partner.

Dr Baker said: "Since running increases the heart rate, it is reasonable to assume that exercising with a potential partner can lead to an increased frequency of mating-related thoughts and self-presentation behavior. & # 39;
