Swimming constraints and arm coordination.
Following Newell's concept of constraint (1986), we sought to identify the constraints (organismic, environmental and task) on front crawl performance, focusing on arm coordination adaptations overExpand

Relative contribution of arms and legs in humans to propulsion in 25-m sprint front-crawl swimming
Abstract Eight male subjects were asked to swim 25 m at maximal velocity while the use of the arm(s) and legs was alternately restricted. Four situations were examined using one arm (1A), two armsExpand

Determinants of the energy cost of front-crawl swimming in children
Abstract. The aim of the present study was to define the determinants of the energy cost of swimming (Cs) in children. Eleven healthy children [mean (SD) age: 12.42 (0.53) years] who practisedExpand

Effects of a high-intensity swim test on kinematic parameters in high-level athletes.
The present study aimed to investigate the effects of a high-intensity swim test among top-level swimmers on (i) the spatial and temporal parameters of both the stroke and the 3-D fingertip patternExpand

Wrist stabilisation and forearm muscle coactivation during freestyle swimming.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the stabilisation of the wrist joint and the ad hoc wrist muscles activations during the two principal phases of the freestyle stroke. Seven male internationalExpand

Fatigue induced by a cross-country skiing KO sprint.
PURPOSE The aims of the present study were 1) to analyze whether the KO sprint simulation induced a phenomenon of fatigue of upper and lower limbs and 2) if there was any fatigue, to determine itsExpand

Effects of fatigue on inter-cycle variability in cross-country skiing.
The aim of the study was to examine the inter-cycle variability in cross-country skiing gait and its evolution with fatigue. Both issues were investigated to understand the flexibility capabilitiesExpand

Effect of fatigue on double pole kinematics in sprint cross-country skiing.
The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of fatigue (physiological, mechanical, and muscular parameters) induced by a sprint simulation on kinematic parameters (cycle, phases, andExpand

Muscular activations during repetitions of sculling movements up to exhaustion in swimming.
The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of the repetition of sculling movements of the upper limb on muscular electrical activities during an exhaustive test in front crawl. Six upperExpand
