A new study led by researchers from the University of British Columbia, Canada now suggests that women have more stamina than Men. The professor who led the study, Brian Dalton said that while men are physically more powerful, women have greater endurance, which allows them to last for a longer time.

A study has been conducted

As reported by The Daily Mail, the study revealed that women will soon be able to defeat men in marathons and cycling events. The scientific study stated that a man’s strength is reduced by 15 percent after repeating any particular physical activity over two hundred times.

Back in the 1900’s, women weren’t even allowed to take part in marathons, as society branded them as unfit for such an activity. The distinction among genders was so severe that an individual named Kathrine Switzer actually disguised herself as a man to take part in the Boston Marathon in 1967. She was one of the main reasons why ten years later women were officially given the right to compete in marathons. History speaks for itself as women have been beaten men in several stamina-oriented sports such as riding and cycling.

The conclusion of the study suggests women have more stamina

The study involved a group of men and women, who were asked to exert their bodies by doing calf-raising exercise.

Roughly two hundred attempts later, it was discovered that the stamina among men reduced almost by 15 percent and the women remained unaffected. It was also found that men were faster and appeared more powerful but it did not take them long to reach a state of fatigue. The women able to carry out the activity with ease.

Professor Dalton is of the opinion that when the paradigm is taken to a number as large as 200, it is only then that one is able to make out the difference, especially where the stamina factor is concerned.

This isn’t the first time that women have been found to have a better stamina than men. In fact, the female body is blessed with this power as it is designed to go through various phases in life such as menstrual stress and pregnancy.

Women may perform better in ultra-ultra marathons

In conclusion, Assistant Professor Dalton at UBC’s Okanagan campus said, “We know from previous research that for events like ultra-trail running, males may complete them faster but females are considerably less tired by the end,” he adds. “If ever an ultra-ultra-marathon is developed, women may well dominate in that arena.”
