  1. inherent differences in body composition, force, and strength & endurance... compared with men, women have:
    • lower whole body muscle mass (smaller muscle fibers)
    • a greater proportion of type I fibers in thigh muscles
    • higher % body fat
    • lower force production (specially in upper body)
    • comparable force production per cross-secontional area in isolated muscle fibers from a muscle biopsy sample
    • greater local muscular endurance
    • lower muscle power
  2. inherent differneces in aerobic performance... compared with men, women have:
    • lower maximal oxygen uptake
    • lower maximal stroke volume
    • lower cardiac output
    • lower hematocrit & hemoglobin
    • reduced oxygen-carrying capacity
    • reduecd tim to exhaustion
    • lower cardiovascular endurance performance, overal
  3. in regards to women and exercise... adaptations to resistance training in women are:
    • strength gains can = those in men
    • relative improvements in msucle force productions do not differ from those in men
    • hypertrophic responses in whole muscles & fibers not sex-specific
    • percription of resistance training is not different for women
    • similar program design considerations for weight training regimens
