In previous publications of the journal Orthopedics, we have given a rationale for the aberration of the existing muscular-contractile mechanics of hopping and sprinting locomotions [1-4]. In these studies, instead of the previous paradigm that interprets the mechanics of locomotion based on actomyosin contraction, we positioned a different model based on the strain energy. These publications show that in locomotions with rapid interaction with the supporting surface (t = 0.08 - 0.16 seconds), the source of movement is by no means the contractile work of the muscles and not explosive repulsion. Muscles are simply not able to exhibit these fast dynamic modes, with an incredible force gradient and with an incredible energy supply by creatine phosphate . In fact, in the high jump, the source of lift is the deformation energy, with the support of the cytoplasm .
