The purpose of this study was to clarify the characteristics of pulling movement for Japanese elite tug of war athletes in the world. In order to examine the pUlling movement, 6 joint angles (viz.: shoulder, trunk, knee, body, upper body, and lower body) of each sUbject were obtained by the DLT motion analysis system during 2004 All Japan Tug of War Championship tournament. It was found that the elite puller of world champion team inclined his upper body more heavily to backwards, and his lower…

Numerical Analysis and Position Strategies of Tug-of-war

A simulation is made of the mechanism of tug-of-war and two basic position strategies are obtained: "standing from high to low" and "the heavier you are, the further you stand".

INFLUENCES OF SOME SPORTS SHOES ON THE STRENGTH OF PULLING EXERCISE IN INDOOR TUG-OF-WAR

INTRODUCTION Friction forces are acting in the contact plane of two bodies and thus, one of them being the earth's surface, horizontal forces can be generated. This paper describes research being

Physiological and metabolic characteristics of elite tug of war athletes

The data indicate that international level tug of war participants have excellent strength and above average endurance relative to body size, but have relatively low explosive leg power and back flexibility.
