For the study, a team of researchers studied male and female rats splitting them into two mixed-sex groups. The first group had access to a running wheel (the exercise group), the second group did not (sedentary group). Both groups had access to various types of diets.

The team concludes: “The significant sex differences in response to physical activity observed through both behavioral and physiological measures suggest potential motivational or metabolic difference between males and females.”
