Influence Of Morphology And Strength On Front Crawl Swimming Speed In Junior And Youth Age Group Swimmers.

admin Biomechanics, Blog, Dryland, Members, Research Abstract

Abstract: Influence Of Morphology And Strength On Front Crawl Swimming Speed In Junior And Youth Age Group Swimmers. OBJECTIVES: This study, conducted in two male age groups, was aimed at analysing the influence of body properties, dry-land strength and swimming strength on 50 m crawl (VCrawl). METHODS: We examined two competitive groups, Youth (20.6 ± 1.05), and Junior, (17.3 ± …

Biomechanical Flaws Are Common in College Swimmers

admin Dr. John Mullen, Members, Research Abstract

Elite swimmers are believed to have ideal biomechanics, yet many in the swimming community recognize these swimmers have flaws. This study analyzed one collegiate team’s swimming. Virag (2014) analyzed thirty-one collegiate swimmers (~20 years; ~179.17 cm; ~75.43 kg) from the University of North Carolina participated in this study. Swimmers who could not complete entire practices due to pain were excluded in …

Optimized-Association Between Years of Competition and Shoulder Function in Collegiate Swimmers.

Association Between Years of Competition and Shoulder Function in Collegiate Swimmers.

admin Blog, Injuries, Research Abstract

Abstract on Association Between Years of Competition and Shoulder Function in Collegiate Swimmers. Shoulder injuries are common among competitive swimmers, and the progression of shoulder pathology is not well understood. The objective of this study was to assess the extent to which years of competitive swim training were associated with physical properties of the supraspinatus muscle and tendon, shoulder strength, and …

Comparison of incremental intermittent and time trial testing in age-group swimmers.

Comparison of incremental intermittent and time trial testing in age-group swimmers.

admin Blog, Research Abstract, Training

Abstract Comparison of incremental intermittent and time trial testing in age-group swimmers. The aim of this study was to compare physiological and biomechanical characteristics between an incremental intermittent test and a time trial protocol in age-group swimmers. 11 national level age-group swimmers (6 male and 5 female) performed a 7 x 200-m incremental intermittent protocol (until exhaustion; 30 s rest) and …

finger spread

The effect of finger spreading on drag of the hand in human swimming.

admin Biomechanics, Blog, Research Abstract

Abstract The effect of finger spread on overall drag on a swimmer’s hand is relatively small, but could be relevant for elite swimmers. There are many sensitivities in measuring this effect. A comparison between numerical simulations, experiments and theory is urgently required to observe whether the effect is significant. In this study, the beneficial effect of a small finger spread …
