Contemporary Swim Start Research is a conference book that includes contemporary reports and corresponding studies on swim starts. Young scientists from all over the world have conducted these swim starts with varying topics that relate to individual starts from the block, backstroke starts, and relay starts highlighting different aspects and phases of the corresponding movement behavior. Most of the reports published in Contemporary Swim Start Research have been presented during the 2015 Young Experts Workshop of Swim Start Research supported by the Federal Institute of Sport Science in Germany.
You will learn the importance of
- Underwater phase to elite swimming start performance
- Biomechanics and motor control
- Evaluating relay starts
- Backstroke start technique
- Postactivation potentiation sprint swimming
