This is the point that the OP is making. Women are superior to men in ability but lack the attributes that give the man the advantage. Take away those
attributes and the woman wins for endurance. As another poster mentioned, an ant is far stronger than other creatures much larger but are hampered by
their size. The same thing applies here, take away the advantages the man has and on equal footing the woman wins.

Both of the studies you and the OP use handicap the man...and then say "look...women did better". Of course they will do better if you put men at a
For your endurance study, they use 75% of the weight they max out at....so a stronger person is always going to be at a handicap because they are
going to max out proportionally larger than a weaker person. And then they will be doing reps at a higher weight. I don't care how strong you are,
male or female, someone using a lower weight will most likely be able to do more reps.
So why handicap...why not just put them toe to toe???
