Interesting physical change for men from 1985 to today

I saw this in a newspaper earlier today when out shopping and found it online.

In 1985 a male hand grip was 117 pounds for ages 20 to 34

Today a male hand grip is 98 pounds for ages 20 to 34

That’s an incredible loss in barely over a generation.

Has society changed that much? Is this mostly about how technology has affected our bodies? I remember in 1985 golfing and playing tennis for activities to do. If I had a tablet, smart tv and Nintendo 3ds would I just said “forget golf and tennis”? I suspect I would have.
