Hypothesis for a Better Understanding of Human Movement

Summary: This blog introduces a hypothesis for understanding human movement both in practice and in computer modeling. Instead of using a kinematic chain as the model, a better mathematical model would reflect the tapering mass of our limbs in the manner that reflects the tapering mass of whips - kinematic whip modeling. Whips increase speed and power performance by using laws of physics. Our limbs work best when using the same laws of physics. Understanding how to manage our limbs best requires an understanding of using them similar to whips.
