Abstract
In an effort to determine the role of different strength training modes on competitive swimming performance, the researchers investigated two specific strength training machines, both of which were designed to mimic the arm and upper body movements found during swimming. The first machine, the Biokinetic swim bench, is an electronically damped, variable resistance device, that records a digital read-out of work measured in kilopond meters (KPM). The second machine is a simple isotonic swim bench with variable weight loads ranging from one to twelve kilograms (2.2 to 26.4 lb. Force) per arm. The scope of this research was necessarily narrowed to sprint swimming performance, as opposed to middle and long distance performance.
