Chopping Wood More Manly than Playing Sports — Dave’s Diary
Ok my manly man brothers—and you know who you are—this one is for us. We may not have the hand-eye coordination of a big league ball player. We may not have the sprinter’s speed or the shot putter’s power but we can have a pile of wood and the mindset of the lumberjack.
There may be a reason why lumberjacks are stereotyped as being manly men. New research finds that chopping wood produced 15-percent more testosterone than playing a competitive sport.
