Athletics From Both Male & Female Perspective
Women are always looked down upon when it comes to many things especially sports. They see them as vulnerable and delicate. It true that men are more muscular than women and that some jobs are more trusted with men than women but what a man can do a woman can do better.
Athletic differences between men and women have much to do with innate characteristics determined by genetics and hormones. They include height, weight, muscle mass, body fat and aerobic capacity. Women have high estrogen level hence more body fats than men, just 8% compared to 4% of the male.
They have less muscular which makes them more flexible and this has an advantage in their motion. Men have higher levels of testosterone which boast their performance. Testosterone also increases the production of red blood cells which absorb oxygen, giving men a greater aerobic advantage.
Women’s joint are less stable than men that’s why they are easily injured. A woman who is well trained can outperform a man who is not. Women can compete with men where physical balance and mental concentration are essential i.e. shooting and equestrian competition.
Some jobs like body guards need muscular men and even if a woman trains to be muscular she won’t be able to outdo a man. This does not mean she can’t be its just that jobs like these are suitable for men more than they are to women. Gymnastic is also a major competition for both men and women but in most cases younger people have more advantage.
