  • rowing kinematics

    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,
