Variable SS H T
Stroke rate (strokes∙min-1) 61 ± 6 (9.8) 54 ± 1 (1.9) * 70 ± 4 (5.7) *
Performance time (s) 371 ± 38 (10.2) 358 ± 30 (8.4) * 357 ± 28 (7.8) *
Stroke length (m) 1.27 ± .15 (11.8) 1.43 ± .12 (8.4) * 1.12 ± .13 (11.6) *
Propulsive phase (% stroke) 56.5 ± 2.3 (4.1) 55.8 ± 2.3 (4.1) 56.2 ± 2.3 (4.1)
