Although women are overall less strong than men, they actually have the same muscle strength per pound – they just have less of it. In addition, the quality of their lifts can be equal to men, the weight simply needs to be adjusted for the decreased volume of muscle. So ladies, if you feel like you're paling besides your male friends at the gym, here are 10 things women excel at compared to the men:

  1. Women are generally better at perfecting form, and appreciating the sport for it.
  2. Women's glutes tend to get stronger than men's, even without adjusting for size difference.
  3. Contrary to popular belief women tend to be less vain at the gym, admiring themselves in the mirror substantially less than men.
  4. Women tend to perform better at isolation lifts than men.
  5. Women have better muscular stamina – they can perform more sets and take smaller rests.
  6. Women tend to be much better motivators than men, and can have more of a positive influence on their gym buddies.
  7. Women have better mobility and flexibility in their weight lifting.
  8. Women have less of a tendency to 'ego lift' - sacrificing technique for a heavier weight.
  9. Women have better elastic or reactive strength compared to men.
  10. Women can train with more frequency than men, having better recovery times and less of a neural load when training.

So there you have it. Try bearing these points in mind the next time you need a bit of an ego boost during training, or are suffering some flack from male mates!  If you have problems with confidence in the weights room, try our article 'Overcoming Intimidation for Women'.
