  Wakefield and Smith () examined the effect of imagery on the strength performance in which they reported several advantages of using the method to improve performance .   The study investigated, in a Nigerian setting, whether the use of videotape recordings is an effective method of teacher education prior to full‐time teaching. Two groups of students were used for study. The first group was allowed to practice the skills through micro‐teaching with the aid of video recording by: Video stroke analysis is the best way to understand how to improve your swimming technique; ultimately leading to improved efficiency and pace holding ability. A great gift idea for birthdays, Christmas and Mothers and Fathers Day! If you are serious about your swimming improvement, invest in a video stroke analysis session. However, newer technology is allowing for more detailed study and assessment of the effects on the cardiovascular system. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than , people in the United States have a stroke each year, which costs the country an estimated $34 billion per year in medical expenses and.

A swim stroke analysis session is the first step in understanding the mechanics of the ideal swim stroke and matching that with your own current stroke. Once you have the knowledge in place, you can work towards making improvements in your own performance. Therefore, the swimming phase is the most (but not the only one) determinant moment of the swimming performance. In this sense, a large part of the biomechanical analysis of competitive swimming is dedicated to the four competitive swimming strokes: (i) the Front Crawl; (ii) the Backstroke; (iii) the Breaststroke and; (iv) the Butterfly stroke. Examination of Stroke Mechanics and Athletic Performance Keywords: swimming, performance, stroke rate, stroke count, swimmer students 1. Introduction requirement for the achievement of success against time is to have well knowledge on the motion and training effects (Barbosa et al., ). Therefore, knowing how these characteristics.   Triathletes Are Weakest At Swimming. When it comes to swimming, the big difference between a triathlete and a former competitive swimmer is that the competitive swimmer might be able to go 50% faster using the same level of work output. Why? Most swimmers develop the proper stroke mechanics and feel for the water at a very young age.

A video-based stroke analysis is the first step towards familiarizing yourself with swimming stroke mechanics and with your own specific needs. With this knowledge, you can improve the quality of your workouts and improve your performance. In Sheila’s new book Swim Speed Strokes, Sheila provides stroke data for 29 elite swimming performances from actual swim meets, often winning and world record-setting swims. Here are a few of the stroke data swims she uses in the book: Dana Vollmer, Olympics, m butterfly (gold medal and world record). Relative Age Effects in swimming – corrective adjustment procedures as a strategy to remove the influence of maturation in competition Junior Dolphins) through schools and clubs to develop foundational stroke mechanics. Understanding the relationship between distance per stroke, stroke rates and knowledge of individual event specific. Stroke length is an index of swimming technique efficiency. It may reach its optimal value (neither too high nor too low) with the development of a relatively high swimming speed. The numerical stroke length value was not really a significant factor of swimming performance in the present analysis .
