Description
This study aimed to examine the relationship between kick speed and leg power and between kick speed and ankle joint flexibility in competitive swimmers. Participants included 10 young competitive male swimmers. Kick speed, leg power (using the Wingate test), and ankle joint angle were measured. The speed during the start phase (passing time for5.0 m) of the 50 m kick showed significant correlation with the average and peak leg power assessed using the Wingate test. Furthermore, the 50 m kick speed showed significant and very high correlation only with ankle joint angle. The results clearly indicate that the relationship between kick speed and ankle joint flexibility is stronger than that between kick speed and leg power. Therefore, increasing the kick speed will effectively improve ankle joint flexibility.
