  • The purpose of this paper is to highlight the interest of comparative locomotion for coaches and researchers, to understand the current locomotion in rock climbing, and the future evolutions of climbing performance. Human is a specie whose ancestors were arboreal. Thus, Human musculo-skeletal system is designed for biped handassisted running, climbing and jumping in the trees. These modes of locomotion are similar to those of other modern arboreal species. Thus, studying these species in their… CONTINUE READING
