Strength Training Improves Sprint Performance

In a recent study, university swimmers participated in a dry-land strength training program once per week for eight weeks. They significantly improved their stroke rate and sprint performance. The graph below shows the pretest and posttest values for stroke rate and stroke length for the control and experimental groups for the 50 meter sprint. The authors concluded that the results support the importance of concurrent strength training even when only performed once a week.

The Problem with Modeling Champions

In a presentation from the online International Society of Biomechanics in Sport Conference last month, the authors cautioned about modeling the technique of champions because “elite swimmers exhibit small technical inefficiencies in almost all aspects of their performance” (Mason & Mackintosh, 2020). They also noted that “the most advantageous corrections to technique problems occur when a biomechanical analysis system is available to assess performance” and stressed the importance of quantitative data.
