How does a human lift a weight ? Can we relate the dynamics of the lift to the molecular actin-myosin interactions responsible for muscle contraction ? We address these questions with bench press experiments that we analyze with a theoretical model, based on the sliding ﬁlament theory. The agreement is fair and we discuss its possible extension to medical diagnostics.
Un café+croissant sera servi dans le hall à partir de 10h45.
