We have identified other findings which have shown that in breaststroke swimming this effect is even greater (Craig, 1986).
During the successive laps of the 200m breaststroke swimming there was an increased percentage of propulsion production in the breaststroke cycles, occurring simultaneously with a reducing gliding phase.
* This study investigated the influence of the selected indicators of somatic properties and physiological capacity as well kinematic and coordination parameters on breaststroke swimming.
* In this observations the body's functional capacity have an important impact on achieving good breaststroke swimming results, the [V.sub.200] was moderately associated on [VO.sub.2]peakLG, moreover, separate [V.sub.200]turns depended with [VO.sub.2]peakLG and on LBM and TWAR.
* The speed of surface breaststroke swimming [V.sub.200] surface similarly as [V.sub.200]turns had a very strong influence on the end result of [V.sub.200], 0.91, p<0.001 and 0.92, p<0.001 respectively.
