Project Title: The effect of post-activation potentiation on the thrust produced by competitive swimmers

Project Introduction: A main concern for swimming coaches is the design of the best warm-up before racing a swim event at a major competition. Swimmers do the warm-up in a pool more than 30 minutes before their race. After that, they must report at a room and wait their turn to race.

The waiting time at the room can cancel out the warm-up performed earlier. Therefore, the swimming fraternity is trying to find out ways of tackling this issue.

An option is eliciting the post-activation potentiation while waiting. The main aim of this research is to investigate the effect of post-activation potentiation on thrust produced by upper- and lower-limbs in competitive swimming.
