For ladies, this will come as no surprise. But now scientists have confirmed that women really do have more endurance than men.

While men can complete running races much faster, women have more staying power – meaning that in extreme events, it’s the girls that come out on top.

The Canadian research has revealed that females are considerably less exhausted after natural, dynamic muscle exercises than their male counterparts.

For the study, Brian Dalton, a professor of neurophysiology at the University of British Columbia, asked nine women and eight men to perform calf raises.

Both sexes performed equally well at the beginning of the test – but fatigue set in earlier for the men.

And after 200 repetitions, the strength of the males fell 15 per cent more than the women. Professor Dalton concluded: ‘The answer is pretty definitive: women can outlast men by a wide margin.

‘So even though they can’t hit the same maximum capacity for strength or power, they are able to perform a task much longer.’
