Women do better with higher reps than men
Untrained Men and Women have the same fibre type distribution. However, this changes with training: in strength training for women, muscle fibres are converted to Type I fibres or don’t convert at all, whereas in Men they generally change to Type II fibres. Women also have proportionally larger Type I fibres than men. The result is that Women are more resistant to fatigue than Men, even when Women and Men with the same strength level are compared. Because Women have more slow-twitch muscles and thus are better at endurance activities and should train their Type II fibres more than men to reach their potential for explosive activities - like sprints.
