A team of researchers from the University of British Columbia explored the durability of male and female muscles at the same age and with the same physical abilities. The results of the research have been published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism and suggest that women’s muscles are more resilient than males.
In the study, nine women and eight men participated, all trials noted the speed, strength, and rotational force of the movements, as well as the electrical activity of the muscles.
“It is known that women are less tired than men over static types of exercises in which the wrists do not move. We were wondering if this is the same when it comes to daily dynamic movements. The final answer is confirmed, women overcome men, “explains Brian Dalton, author of the study.
He explains that the needs of the study were exclusively the movements of the feet because they use muscles at the back of the leg, muscles that we use daily when walking and standing.
“Of course, men will first reach the marathon goal, but then women will be much less tired,” Dalton concludes.
