The aim of this study was to determine the effects of drafting behind another swimmer on the metabolic response and stroke characteristics. Six highly trained male triathletes performed two maximal 400-m swims, one in a drafting (D) and one in a non-drafting condition (ND). Their metabolic response was assessed by measuring the oxygen uptake (V˙O2) and the blood lactate concentration at the end of each 400 m. Swimming velocity, stroke frequency, stroke length, and stroke index (velocity… CONTINUE READING
