THE EFFECT OF SUPPORTING PIVOT OF FOOT MALLEOLUS UPON THE VELOCITY OF ROWING
Keywords: sea boat, rowing velocity, beginner
AbstractDoes foot malleolus’ supporting pivot, except the hip, play an important role on the forward velocity of rowing when human beings sit on sea boats? Distracting those who either could not join the tests or were not health, there were 20 subjects (average 20.7 years). Meanwhile, P-t test (paired-t test) was performed in couples. The result shows that increase the foot malleolus’ supporting pivot will promote the efficiency of rowing velocity. There are two suggestions. The first is to increase the foot malleolus’ supporting pivot to promote the efficiency and velocity of rowing when playing the canoe. The second is that the instructors should teach the beginners how to keep the boat in a steady state, overcome fear and promote the velocity of rowing by increasing the area of supporting pivots. The results proof that students can make profit from the theories and field skills. Also, they can contribute to skills of leisure canoes and instruction performance. In addition, they can apply to related fields, manpower boats, for example.
