This paper deals with the analysis of optimal path forward dynamics of mechanical systems. The primary applications considered are bio-mechanical simulations of musculoskeletal systems. The focus is put on problems of controlled movements from one configuration to another. Different criteria for this movement are allowed in the formulation. Formulations, examples and conclusions are given.
