Great insights on pain and sports performance!
Learn from an expert and come to better understand a complicated element within sports by watching Dr. John Heil’s three-part series on pain and sport performance.
This ISCA service is presented without charges:
Freestyle and Backstroke Shoulder & Hip Rotation
How does torso rotation change as swimmers go faster? The body roll amplitude of ten, elite, male swimmers was analyzed (Gonjo, Fernandes, Vilas‑Boas, & Sanders, 2021). The authors concluded that with an increase in swimming velocity, swimmers maintain the amplitude of shoulder and hip rotation in backstroke, but decrease the amplitude in freestyle. The graph shows rotation at maximum swimming velocity.
