Nowadays, females commonly perform Military combat roles that were once exclusively performed by males. Given the strength differences between the sexes, it is important to understand if females adapt differently to physical training, which may necessitate sex-specific training programs. This study measured lower-body force and power as well as basic fitness, and found males and females both improved lower- body force production in the same way, but females upper- body strength improved more than males.
