Your Bod

Are girls stronger than boys? This study says maybe yes

It's no secret that boys' bods are built differently than girls—one that means they build muscle easier and have a much different body shape than us. And while it's a common stereotype that guys are stronger than girls, a recent study revealed something that may prove otherwise.

During the study, men and women were asked to flex their foot. What the researchers found was that while guys were able to do it much faster at first, they wore out quicker than the girls. Plus, there have been multiple findings that, while men may finish exercise activities (like a race or interval workout) faster than women, they often are more tired when it's done. The conclusion? Girls have better endurance than boys—score!
