Deck Squats and body proportions

I've been noticing that my female clients frequently have a much easier time doing deck squats than men: need much less momentum, etc.

Just wondering if anyone has ever noticed this, and if there's some anatomical reason (femur/tibia ratio or something like that) to explain it? It definitely seems like anatomy could play a role in how easy or hard it is to get your center of gravity forward over your feet as you rock forward.

Re: Deck Squats and body proportions

It's the difference than many men carry more mass in their upper body and back than the gals who also tend to carry more weight around their hips.
