The purpose of the study was to determine the extent to which differences in initial speed persist to the stroke phase in front-crawl swimming. Ten male college swimmers performed trials for three types of start that produced different initial speeds: maximal-effort dive, submaximal-effort dive, and maximal-effort wall push. The submaximal effort was determined by the swimmer himself. Participants swam 25 m for each trial, and their motions were recorded by five fixed cameras positioned lateral… CONTINUE READING
