Women's Muscles Outlast Men's

Women’s muscles perform longer before they tire than men’s, says a review of 200 exercise and performance studies published since 1972, which included a total of 4,113 women and men. That means that when exercising at the same intensity, women can sprint farther, lift more reps, and run greater distances than men. This research suggests that women’s exercise routines may be more beneficial if they’re matched to women’s specific strengths. Such exercises may also better protect women against injury and increase their ability to perform everyday activities that get harder with age, such as rising from a chair.
