Does The Angle Of Your Ankle Affect The Propulsion of Your Flutter Kick?
Division:International / None
City:Yarmouth, NS
School:Maple Grove Education Centre
Abstract:This project tested whether having greater ankle flexion in the flutter kick would increase your propulsion of your freestyle stroke. Swimmers performed ankle flexibility exercises and swam with homemade angled fins. Swimming with the angled fins proved that the greater your ankle flexion, the greater your propulsion.
