Summary:

• Shoulders rotate out of phase with the pelvic rotation to keep rotation balance.
• Arms swing with the shoulders’ rotation.
• Motion of the hand and ankle trace out a half-teardrop cycle during a walk.
• The body’s up/down motion can induce swinging by parametric resonance.
• In parametric resonance the frequency of swinging is half of the up/down frequency.
