Division 1 Athletics, plus Curious Lesson of the Day!

I used to work in Collegiate Athletics. I loved reading this post myself and I think it rings with truth. I was so excited to have the 12 Minute Abs session selected to go along with this interesting post:

Curio #248 | Division one and done
A daily curious fact from Justin Kitch, Curious CEO
I'm feeling a lot better about never achieving my dream of playing Division I college basketball. Last month's Sports Journal of Medicine contained a study that finds Division I athletes suffered from much higher levels of disabling pain, depression and health problems than the general population. The researchers note that these athletes were used to training at the highest level, and always had coaches and doctors' assistance. Since most of them played sports that aren't practical later in life, they had difficulty adjusting to self-motivated workouts in the gym or on the treadmill--so they tended to do nothing. Two thirds of them also suffered from a major injury, and 40% had arthritis, compared to 24% of the general population. The healthiest segment appears to be people who only played recreational sports in college--"weekend warriors" as we like to call ourselves--and learned to incorporate exercise into their routine on their own. I hope all those guys who dunked on me in high school are reading this!
