Increasing the effectiveness of the stroke during the drive.



The turning – point in the front / at the catch. Late slowing down and fluently, synchronic turning back of the separate body – part – movements .  No stretching into a longer catch-position while resulting a slower catch or missing water.



轉折點 -  一開始和入水慢慢的降低速度,並流暢地將身體回到提槳入水的位置。


 Reducing the recovery-speed to and at the catch





The first part of the drive / after the catch: Out of the pre-tension and an useful catch-position a positive,  quick catch, but according to the Big-Blade, rising the pressure with a lot of feeling, which enables the athlete to keep this pressure for 2000 m. Continuously power-output by connecting the separate body–part movements.



起跑的第一部分/入水之後一閞始先前的緊張以及一個有效的入水姿態,而後積極的快速入水。但 是由於是大的槳葉,需以很強的感覺來提高施用的力量。這樣可以使運動員在2000 公尺之間都能維持這樣的力量。持續的力量釋放,是藉由身體部位運動的相連接。


early, but continuously boat-acceleration , without break in the middle-part of the stroke.





Use the Big-Blade more efficient for the force– and power–output in the middle-part and the finish of the stroke. (requires 2. !) Long, even legstroke – acceleration and following connection.


能更有效率的使用斧型槳葉的力道及力量,是在划槳的中途及最後的步驟放。長時間,甚至蹬腿, 是加速度的動作並要連貫結合。


Boat-acceleration in the middle-part and the finish of the stroke.
