Finger Length Plays a Role in Exercise Habits

Posted:

Is your index finger shorter than your ring finger?  For what it's worth, experts say that people with shorter index fingers tend to be more athletic and motivated to exercise. 

By studying mice, researchers say that, judging by activity levels, they believe the index to ring finger ratio to be related to higher levels of stress hormones in the womb.

So, you're looking for an excuse to not exercise in the morning - maybe you can blame it on your fingers.
