The purpose of this study was to investigate pulling force in tug of war in accordance with the changes of the tuggers’ posture using the computer simulation, and considering the characteristics of human body such as body height, body weight, and holding height. As the model of human body, a 3-segmented rigid multibody system was made, which had three movable joints. After modeling, the validity of the model was verified by experimental data. As a result, pulling force was proved to be changed…

Volitional Postures during Maximal Push/Pull Exertions in the Sagittal Plane
TLDR
It is shown that foot placement, handle height, and body postures affect push and pull force capability in a manner that is reasonably logical, using biomechanical concepts.

Horizontal push and pull forces: exertable when standing in working positions on various surfaces.
Push and pull forces are reported which can be exerted by one or several men while they assume common standing positions, either braced against sturdy supports or standing on slippery floors.
