We all know that male and female bodies are built differently and that men are often physically bigger and stronger- however have one big advantage. Stamina.
A new study suggests that women have greater muscle endurance than men. So while men may be stronger, women’s stamina can help to even out the playing field.
The study asked a group of eight men and nine women who were all of a similar age and fitness level to perform certain exercises. They found that the men were only faster and more powerful at first.
As time went on, the males became tired faster than the women. They also found that women felt less tired than men after endurance activities. These endurance activities included things like marathons even if men did finish faster.
So while males may have strength on their side women have stamina so we all have valuable physical abilities.
