I think the discussions about the differences between the baseball swing and the softball swing is quite interesting. I think it goes into female vs. male differences as well.
Since I had to do a major clean-up in the previous thread because of inappropriate posts, the flow of the previous is not smooth and might not make sense at times.
So, I thought we could start fresh here and discuss it.
A few thoughts...
It is a known fact that female have less upper body strength than male do. To add to this, female are closer in strength to men in the lower body than they are in the upper body.
To make sure you get what I am saying.. let's say you have a male and a female of the exact same height (5'8'') and exact same weight (150 lbs).
In the upper body, that female could have only about 45% of that male strength where in the lower body, she could have 60% of that male strength.
By the way, the percentage are just symbolic figure, i have no real numbers or stats. I just made them up to prove a point.
My point being that overall... women have strong legs but less strength in the upper body.
Does that make a difference in their ability to swing?
