Est-ce génétique ?

Why is it so hard for many of us to find sufficient motivation to exercise? David Lieberman, an anthropologist, recently wrote in The Guardian that our body isn't made for deliberate, non-compulsory exercise. Though our hunter-gatherer ancestors exercised on average two and a half hours per day, they only did so because they had to in order to ensure their survival. Exercise, as we know it, is a modern invention, which became popular in the 19th century, when desk jobs started to increase – but it isn't something we naturally crave. "We evolved to be physically active only when it was necessary or fun," Lieberman added, "Don’t feel bad if you struggle to exercise. You aren’t lazy, you’re normal."
