Greg Doucette never misses a chance to quash the well-known bodybuilding facts by sharing his unique insights that often get his viewer’s attention. Recently, he declared that the less muscle gains in women than men is due to less effort of the former gender group. 

While science blames it on the estrogen hormone in women, which makes it hard for them to showcase the same amount of muscle gains as men, Doucette credits it to their poor work at the gym. “I’ve studied this in detail, women, on average, put less effort in sports, powerlifting, weightlifting, basketball, every sport, you name it, men, on average, try harder than girls,” he declared, citing his years of experience as a physical education teacher.

Doucette has also explained the reasons for women’s low efforts at the gym. He feels that parents encourage their boys into sports more than their girls. So, the coach feels females aren’t wired to be interested in sports, hence the low efforts. Earlier, the coach put out his perspective on body positivity and obesity.

The lifestyle changes of modern society are the cornerstone for an alarming rise in obesity in Americans. However, body positivity campaigns are inclusive of all body types, and the soul agenda is to embrace all shapes and sizes with a smile. But Doucette doesn’t hesitate to show the evident loophole.

The average person is overweight, so what do people do? Oh, you look so beautiful, more of you to love. You’re 400 pounds, that’s fantastic. Which is not,” he said in one of his videos. As a bodybuilding coach, Doucette encourages people weighing on the higher end of the scale to take measures to be fit and healthy without being carried away by body positivity slogans.
