Are boys stronger than girls?

Answer

According to the University of Indiana, boys are not actually stronger, on average, than girls until they reach the age of 12 to 13, when their strength levels begin to diverge at puberty. Until that point, boys and girls perform about the same in athletic events.

According to the National Institutes of Health, once puberty does hit, strength diverges greatly between the sexes. Women are, on average, only 52 percent as strong in their upper bodies and 66 percent as strong in their lower bodies as men. This is partially because men have greater average mass, but men are also stronger because of lean body weight.
