As a man I worry about sperm count and age so that is why i was very happy with this study! Looks like if you don’t like to move  now you have a clear reason to do so. A new finding has just been released

If you are inactive you may have a  lower sperm count.

A new just released study found that Healthy young men who watch a lot of TV and those who skimp on exercise have lower concentrations of sperm in their semen than guys who watch less and move more

According to the USA Today The findings also may offer some reassurance to active guys who have heard that exercise might decrease sperm counts, says Jorge Chavarro, an assistant professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health and a co-author of the study published Monday in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

“Most of the previous research has focused on endurance athletes, such as marathon runners and professional cyclists,” whose bodies may be under unusual stresses, Chavarro says. Biking, in particular, might overheat or injure the scrotum, research suggests.

Results:

• Are you into TV? Those who watched the most TV, more than 20 hours a week, had sperm counts 44% lower than those who watched none.

• Those who exercised the most, more than 15 hours a week, had sperm counts 73% higher than those who exercised the least, less than five hours a week.

Chavarro says. He and his co-authors suggest that metabolic changes related to inactivity and that heating of the scrotum caused by prolonged sitting in front of the TV might play roles — though studies on sperm counts in office workers who sit all day have yielded mixed results

Chavarro says TV still may be linked to important dietary factors, including exposure to lots of junk food advertising. Several other recent studies have linked prolonged TV watching to heart disease, diabetes and early death.

Why dont you try this exercise to increase your Sperm count? or maybe you want to warn to increase physical activity in some men you may know
