This study reports on rock climbers biomechanical adjustments following a leg release from a quadrupedal vertical initial stance. Six climbers of international level have been studied. They were asked to maintain a quadrupedal posture on artificial holds equipped with strain gauges and then to release their right foot. The results show that all the rock climbers adjust differently the vertical forces and the horizontal forces on the holds. They distribute the vertical forces over the three… CONTINUE READING
