PRINCIPLE AND TVVO FORMS OF SWIMMING PROPULSION
Keywords: swimming, propulsion, water resistance, torque
AbstractPropulsion in water is primarily done by generating torque in the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle. To do this water resistance is used as support. By the of arm movements the body is pulled through the water, by the leg movements it is pushed. Locomotion is also found without any direct backward motion of the water.
