Between Men And Women Which Gender Is Stronger

What is strength?

The quality of being strong i.e. capable of withstanding great external or physical force.

Males remain physically stronger than females when adjusting for differences in total body mass, due to the higher male muscle-mass to body-mass ratio. The greater muscle mass is reported to be due to a greater capacity for muscular hypertrophy as a result of higher levels of circulating testosterone in males.

Men are physically stronger than women, on average. A study in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that men had an average of 26 lbs. (12 kilograms) more skeletal muscle mass than women.

Studies in which strength was calculated per kilogram of lean body weight seem to show that women are a bit weaker in their upper bodies but that their leg-press strength is actually greater.

Are women really more emotional than men?

Most researchers agree that women are more emotionally expressive, but not that they experience more emotions than men do. Some studies have shown that women are more likely to produce inauthentic smiles than men do, while others have shown the opposite.

Like women, men experience hormonal shifts and changes. Every day, a man's testosterone levels rise in the morning and fall in the evening. Testosterone levels can even vary from day to day. ... That's why these cycles have been described as “man-struation” or the “male period.” Funny😂

All these goes to prove that men are stronger than women but watch out what the women have to say about this

1. We are the life-expectancy champions

As per the data maintained by the global Gerontology Research Group, out of the 43 people in the world who've made it past the age of 110, 42 are women. Women tend to live longer than men.

2. Our survival skills are just as kickass as our management skills

The same study also highlights the fact that women are more likely to survive tougher conditions such as famines, extreme climatic changes, and disease epidemics as compared to men—and have a stronger immunity.

3. We can handle pain better

Just like most things in life, we can also handle pain better than men because according to a study conducted at the McGill University, women have a higher threshold for pain

4. We are also emotionally stronger

A study published in the journal Emotion says that women are better at identifying their negative emotions such as sadness and disgust—thanks to them being responsible for reproduction. Thus, they are more sensitive to environmental chemicals, which perhaps, men tend to take lightly due to their so-called “masculinity

Even when it comes to nursing a heartbreak, we’re better than men. As per a study conducted at the Binghamton University in New York and University College London, in case of a break-up, women may feel the hurt deeper as compared to men. However, they tend to heal faster while men simply move on and never really mend.

4. Needless to say, we’re the more intelligent sex

Men might have been proven to have a higher brain volume, however, women still manage to beat them when it comes to those I.Q. tests–and there’s a solid scientific reason for it cited by a study conducted at the University of Edinburgh. Women have thicker cortices, the area of the brain that is linked to improved performance on intelligence tests.

5. We know when to seek help and have no qualms about it

Men can act all tough, but we all know how they freak out at the mention of the ‘D’ word.

According to a British research, women are better at reporting and explaining their symptoms to a doctor and seeking timely medical help in case of a health issue in comparison to men, who might get freaked out by the mere thought of getting an injection or simply visiting a doctor

6. We’ve got stronger legs too

As per a study published in the journal The Royal Society Publishing, a unit of a fit woman’s muscles can produce the same force as that of a similarly fit man. So, women just have a lower muscle mass, not muscle strength, got it?

Considering the fact that we tend to have a heavier lower body, the study also points out that women’s legs may be stronger than that of men. So, unless you want to witness that strength in the form of kick on your rear, stop underestimating the women in your life.
