Why do climbers heads always seem to be pushed forwards?
The forward head posture commonly observed in climbers can be attributed to a combination of factors. Firstly, climbers often need to look up at the wall or route ahead, which naturally leads to a slight forward tilt of the head. Additionally, maintaining a forward-leaning body position helps to shift the center of gravity closer to the wall, enhancing stability and balance during climbing movements. This forward head position, along with the focus on upward visual attention, can result in the appearance of a pushed-forward head posture among climbers.
