Posted on the J.C. Cardinals account, the clip shows the woman able to lift the chair with no problem. In fact, she is even smiling as she does it. When the man tries, he is unable to stand up while holding the chair.
In a blog post, scientists Jeremy Johnson explains why men are struggling with the challenge.
“Interestingly enough, many girls can successfully complete this challenge, while most boys cannot.
“Why? Again, it’s all about the center of mass.
“The center of mass for most girls is lower to the hips, while the center of mass in boys is much higher.
“Therefore, for most girls, the center of mass while bent over the chair is above their feet, while the center of mass for most boys is above the chair.”
