When it comes to health and fitness facts, the truth remains to be truly discovered because at the end of the day truth is ever evolving.
Meaning we must allow our minds to accept old facts while abandoning outdated ones.
According to the study which involved eight men and nine women of same age and athletic ability, researchers from the University of British Columbia in Canada discovered that the women were considerably less fatigued after a natural calf exercise than their men counterparts.
In other words, women are more superior when it comes to muscle endurance during workouts.
“We’ve known for some time that women are less fatigable than men during isometric muscle tests – static exercises where joints don’t move, such as holding a weight – but we wanted to find out if that’s true during more dynamic and practical everyday movements,” Assistant Professor Brian Dalton said in a news release .
“And the answer is pretty definitive: Women can outlast men by a wide margin.”
The study was published in the June 2017 issue of Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism with funds from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
