Climb Newcastle News: palmaris longus


You may remember that during the January round of the WBS, two of our customers, Josh and Muk, conducted a study looking into the presence of a muscle and tendon group known as 'palmaris longus', and you may well have been asked by the guys if you would like to take part.

Well we are very happy to have invited Muk and Josh to be guest writers for the articles section of our website and give you some insight into whether the presence of the palmaris longus tendon group affects climbing performance.
