A new study has revealed that the perfect fit is elusive for some of the world’s biggest stars, and that their fitness routines are often far from it.
The results were based on a study of 5,000 professional athletes in Australia and New Zealand.
These included stars from the likes of Lionel Messi, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
But when they were asked which sports they were most likely to be in, the answers ranged from being a heavy runner to a swimmer.
The researchers found that the most common sports used by athletes were swimming, ice skating, golf and rugby.
And while the majority of the athletes reported their exercise routine was very similar, there were some notable differences.
For example, when asked which sport they were active in the most, they listed golf as their most active one, followed by rugby.
But while rugby and golf are both very popular sports, they were also the only sports to be found to be more popular than running.
The study also looked at the athletes’ weight.
The participants were asked how much weight they weighed, and how much they had gained over the last 12 months.
The researchers found there was no clear link between the two, suggesting that there may be more to the equation than meets the eye.
“The researchers noted that athletes’ fitness routines often are far from optimal,” said study author Dr Andrew O’Keefe from the Department of Health Sciences at the University of New South Wales.
“This suggests that athletes need to be aware of how their own physical fitness can affect the effectiveness of their workout routine.”
“It’s possible that a lack of consistent exercise routines and an athlete’s lack of motivation are the key factors that may contribute to their performance not being as good as it could be.”
The researchers believe that the findings are important as they highlight the need for athletes to incorporate their own fitness routines into their training and recovery.
“It would be helpful if we could learn from athletes about what exercises they use, the number of exercises they do and their recovery strategies,” Dr O’Reilly said.
“Hopefully, we will be able to improve their own training, as well as their performance.”
While the results suggest that some athletes may be in the minority, they suggest that a few are definitely doing it right.
“In terms of fitness, there are no real guidelines on what is good, what is bad and what is not,” Dr Andrew said.
