THE TRAINING STROKE OF MURRAY ROSE (Circa 1960)

THE TRAINING STROKE OF MURRAY ROSE (Circa 1960)

This record was made by Forbes Carlile at the 1960 Olympic Games Swimming Team training camp in Queensland, Australia.

Wave drag: some theory

Wave drag: some theory

When swimming near the surface, the pressure field around the swimmer sets up a wave system similar to what occurs for ships (Figure 1). Both the wave-length (l) and the wave amplitude increase with increasing swimming speed.

STILL MORE ON DRAG VERSUS LIFT PROPULSION IN SWIMMING

STILL MORE ON DRAG VERSUS LIFT PROPULSION IN SWIMMING

Support is rising to refute the belief that lift forces and Bernoulli's Principle are significant contributors and reasons for propulsion in swimming strokes.

PROPELLING EFFICIENCY IS MOST IMPORTANT FOR SWIMMING

Biomechanics of Swimming

This study examined the relationships between propelling efficiency, peak aerobic power, and freestyle swimming performance in trained male collegiate swimmers (N = 14). Performance was the time for a 400-yd swim.

NO PLACE FOR CATCH-UP CRAWL PATTERNS IN ELITE SWIMMING

Biomechanics of Swimming

The arm coordination of elite triathletes (N = 19) and swimmers (N = 15) were compared at six different crawl stroke velocities (range 80-100% of maximum velocity).

Swimming Starts in Elite Sprinters

Swimming Starts in Elite Sprinters

Track, two footed, sling shot, and lean forward are various starts swimmers utilize. The optimal start has yet to be determined and should be individualized to fit the swimmer, but an article in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research was published this past month which analyzed the aerial start phase in elite freestyle swimmers. In the study, the researchers had the opportunity to work with 11 elite sprint male sprinters (average participant was 94.5%, in swimming terms is 49.56 100 meter free).
