CONTEXT Forward propulsion in freestyle swimming is predominantly achieved through arm action. Few studies have assessed the effects of arm training on arm power and swimming performance, yet there have not been any investigations on the effects of arms-only swimming training on swimming performance and physiological responses to arm exercise. PURPOSE To investigate the changes in arms-only and full-stroke swimming performance, movement economy and aerobic power after an arms-only swimming… CONTINUE READING
