View Full Version : rowing kinematics

12-11-1996, 10:25 AM
G'day all,

A student is looking for description of lower limb and trunk sagittal
kinematics of elite rowers. A lit search has thrown up the following
results, but none really answer the question adequately. Any help would be
appreciated (and summarised).

best wishes,
