Why are a lot of my friends so poor at physical activity, is it genuine or an act?

Obviously there are strength differences as a whole between the sexes but strength is only one element of physical activity. Most women I have as friends are not very good at physical activity involving co ordination, balance and effort from my observations. Either they really do lack the skills or they are acting (to conform to a social role maybe). For example Im female myself but quite a few of the women I go to the bowling alley with have the bars up on each side. Ive never felt I needed them so don't bother, yet more often than not I still beat them at bowls lol. Their technique at bowling is poor too compared to say the average guy I see bowling. Its the same with kickboxing theres just a lack of effort and co ordination.

I grew up climbing, rollerskating, riding over ramps etc and having a kick about etc perhaps learned co ordination skills and how to be in tune with my body. I think that Ive either naturally been more capable at physical activity than most females or else owe it to all the physical activity I did when I was younger.

At the end of the day our nervous system and co ordination develops and moulds to what we do. It is true that practice makes perfect as whatever activity we do as we are growing, or even in adulthood too, moulds neural development. I think that because of this females especially should be encouraged to take part in physical activity and compete more.

They have just done less physical exercise. Practice would get them in shape, but they dont do enough. That simple. You do so you are fitter.

Why would someone 'act' being poor at physical activity? You've pretty much answered your own question. They do less practice and perhaps haven't been taught the correct techniques so obviously won't be so good at bowling etc. This applies to everything - if someone doesn't practice maths or hasn't written in a long time, their maths and English won't be fantastic either.
