To reach the conclusion, two groups of volunteers were sent for evening gym exercises for eight weeks but one were set a series of mental tests needing concentration by day, reports The Daily Express.

They did not exercise as hard, said Professor Kathleen Martin Ginis.

She added: "They were more likely to skip their exercise ­sessions. You only have so much willpower."

The professor said: "Willpower is like a muscle. It needs to be ­challenged to build itself."
