Chairman of the Department of Military Science at the University of Michigan, who conducted a test of Army officer candidates, and found that: The top 20 percent of women at West Point achieved scores on the Army Physical Fitness Test equivalent to the bottom 20 percent of male cadets. Only seven percent of women can meet a score of 60 on the push-up test, while 78 percent of men exceed it. A 20- to 30-year-old woman has the same aerobic capacity as a 50-year- old man. Only one woman out of 100 could meet a physical standard achieved by 60 out of 100 men. Woman by nature are smaller and slower, and have 40% less upper body strength.
Now I realize that females may not be as strong as males BUT there are many [more important] things I and my good friend Cosmopolitan would like to highlight.

1. We evolve hotter
2. We survive car accidents more often (men 77% more likely to die)
3. We're better at seeking comfort
4. We're more recession proof
5. We graduate college more often (and do it in a more timely fashion!)
6. We eat healthier
7. We have stronger immune systems
8. We live longer
9. We're better managers
10. We invest better
In conclusion, yes it is a wee bit embarrassing that a 20-30 year old woman has the aerobic capacity of a 50 year old man BUT I would rather have a better immune system, invest wisely, and most importantly... be hotter :)
