Men are really & # 39; ready to be born & # 39 ;: the male body evolved as a specialized fighting weapon
Men are really & # 39; ready to be born & # 39 ;: the male body evolved as a specialized fighting weapon built specifically to evolve to throw punches and hit their sexual rivals, according to a study
- Men have evolved to be good throwing punches to beat their rivals.
- The average power of a man during a coup is 162 percent greater than that of a woman
- Scientists believe that men were forced to be good fighting to compete with their rivals
- This led to an intense sexual selection, which created the difference between the male and female bodies that are seen today.
Human men evolved to be good at hitting to win fights with sexual competitors to be able to raise with women.
One study found that men throughout the time have been forced to discard to gain the affection of women and have children.
This pressure has caused the male bodies to change, becoming more powerful and explosive by throwing a quick right hook.
It has led to what is known as sexual dimorphism: physical differences between males and females in a species.

WHAT IS SEXUAL DIMOPRISM?
Sexual dimorphism describes the differences in appearance between males and females of the same species, such as their size, color and shape.
These differences are obvious in many bird species, such as peacocks.
Male peacocks, as a well-known example, are decorated with luxurious blue and green tufts that crawl behind them and a brightly colored head.
Females, on the other hand, may have a touch of this color on the neck, but they are mostly neutral, with opaque brown or white feathers.
For women who lack the ornamentation of their male counterparts, researchers say this may be a way to avoid unwanted male attention.
While it is known that some females exhibit ornamentation, it is much more common for males to have exaggerated decorative features to attract females.
For thousands of years, men who could not fight were slowly eliminated from the gene pool and, as a result, modern men are achieved in a hand-to-hand conflict.
The end result is that male bodies specifically adapted to evolution to be good at hitting.
For example, researchers in the US UU. They discovered that the weakest man hits harder than the strongest woman in the tests.
The researchers write in the study: & # 39; Sexual dimorphism often arises from the selection of specific musculoskeletal traits that improve the performance of the male struggle.
"In humans, a common form of fighting includes using fists as weapons."
They discovered that the average power of men during a stroke test was 162 percent greater than that of women.
However, when it came to throwing spears, the difference was not so great, which implied that evolution had created men to fight, not to hunt.
Professor David Carrier of the University of Utah said: & # 39; This is a dramatic example of sexual dimorphism that is consistent with men becoming more specialized in fighting and men fighting in a particular way, which is throwing punches.
& # 39; There are two sides of who we are as a species.
"If our goal is to minimize all forms of violence in the future, then understanding our trends and what our nature really will be helpful."

The researchers measured the punching force of 20 active men and 19 active women assembling a crank that would mimic the movements of a blow.
Men and women would also have a line over their head forward in a movement similar to throwing a spear.
This was to test the hypothesis that the strength of the upper body of the males may have developed for the purpose of hunting spears.
But this test found that the sexes did not show the same difference in strength with the tensile test at the top to "lengthen the arm to push the fist forward."
Researchers believe that this proves that the male body is designed to strike instead of throwing weapons.
Previous studies have found that, on average, the upper body of men has 75% more muscle mass and 90% more strength than women, but it is not known why.
The different proportions of the hands are not only for manual dexterity, but also protect the hand when it is formed in a fist, according to previous studies.
The assistant professor at Wofford College, Jeremy Morris, said: “ The general approach to understanding why sexual dimorphism evolves is to measure the actual differences in the muscles or skeletons of males and females of a given species, and then observe the behaviors that could be driving those differences. "
The results were published in the Journal of experimental biology.
