Training effects indoor vs outdoor - possible Master Thesis

    Hello ladies and gentlemen.

    Im currently on the road to my master thesis and struggeling both with ideas and support on my university.
    Im studying sports therapy and of course we should do something with connection.
    So I thought about all training including athletic training is going to be indoor and the possible side effects.
    So I wonder if one can measure significant effects from outdoor training alone vs indoor training over a maybe 12 weeks period.
    After first checking I saw there is really not much studying in this field, but maybe someone can help me out with some advice where to search for studies from the US.

    I think this could be really interesting for the whole community.

    I had a quick look. None of them are comparative studies but will probably yield some data. Does this help?

    It would be. I have seen with people who work out outside their functional movement patterns improve without any training at all. It is as if if we add sunlight to the human living the sun light has a knowledge of how to improve the movement of the organism in its chosen environment.

    This is why indoor crissfitters strength is horrible when we put them outside in nature and not under a barbell.

    And what about the contrast in dopamine levels of inside vs outside --- seems to me higher dopamine means less need for thrill-seeking / self-validating exercises learned from cultural conditioning, while blind to downstream consequences of doing stupid shit over and over.

    its not about the amount of dopamine. It is about the pulse, the timing, the receptors in involved and the then the amount. We've had some members recently complete lose their shit because they forgot context. Being in sun is the easiest way to do it correctly without having to know it all.

    I have to admit, there is not capacity for such question as my university. Thank you, for your suggestions anyway.
