RELATION OF SWIMMING PROPULSION AND MUSCLE FORCE MOMENT
Keywords: 3D, hydrodynamics, swimming, muscle force moment, propulsion
AbstractBased on 3D video analyses of swimming movements new hypotheses on the mechanisms of propulsion could be deduced. Applying the hydrodynamic basic equation the forces at the limbs were estimated and the joint moments were calculated by summing across the body segments. These muscle force moments are related to the velocity of the centre of gravity of the body (eG) as a measure for the propu'lsion within a movement cycle. Simultaneously they serve as controlling data for dry land strength training.
