That's all true. You obviously agree that women can't and won't ever match men in size and strength, although they may improve in given sports over time. I don't think that incredibly strong women always have anomalous bodies (in the health sense), though. Some healthy, normal women are incredibly strong. There's a lot of variation both between and within the two human genders. Some females have great genes for size, strength, speed, etc.. They can optimize their physical traits in natural ways. Of course, many female athletes are enhanced by artificial means in ways that they weren't in the past. You still find accounts of great female athletes and fighters from the past, though. Some of them entertained their contemporaries in strong-woman acts in traveling circuses. Some of them performed feats of strength at beaches and on stages. That's not to mention the long list of historical "Xenas", as well as female combat athletes of all kinds.

I absolutely agree.  Where I was referring to the hormonal inbalance I was speaking specifically of muscle, not strength.  Some of the strongest women weight lifters, who can lift the heaviest weights are tiny little things, but incredibly strong.  But when it comes to weight lifting and actually building new muscle (not just increasing strength) the general woman does not have the testosterone to do it in a great amount like a man (unless they are taking steriods or have a hormonal imbalance).

But yes, in regards to strength I totally agree :)

One thing i always noticed from women in training pound for pound their leg strength is far greater than a mans.I have seen 115 pound women who leg strength can be compared to men at 170 its crazy!

It's absolutely amazing isn't it.  Last night my 6yr old was seeing who was the "strongest"... me or his daddy.  So he feels my biceps and says "hmmm, quite strong"....... then he feels my husbands and says "hmmmmm, squishy" hahaha!  I think my husband might be starting lifting very soon lol.

Hence the weight divisions. You need heft to wield that heavy paddle.

There's no doubt that the average man is more muscular. Most women won't build "man muscles" through ordinary weight training, especially if they do high repetitions with light weights. Of course, there are amazons who can reach impressive genetic potentials in a natural way. It's true that some smaller female lifters are very strong, especially for their size. The larger female lifters are much stronger, though. All larger male lifters and most smaller male lifters are stronger than the larger female lifters at the elite competitive level. Credit testosterone. Female bodybuilders, with goblin jaws, do. ;)
