"Low pull"?

Postby AnimalNige » October 10th, 2014, 11:19 am

I know the concept. The fastest single stroke you can manage.

How is it measured? All the other standard pieces from 100m up must be from a static flywheel.

What about the LP? Surely the figures I see in people's signatures can't have been got from a static flywheel?

No indeed, its not a single stroke, its a short serie of strokes, the fastest one being the low pull. Often stroke 5 to 7. The most accurate is a watt lowpull. Certainly at higher speed the jumps per second/500 are big in watts. The best I have heard of is 1.02

Thanks. I'll try to build up my PB "portfolio" in my signature over the next few months.

Low pull stuff is a sprinter thing, for you proberly not very important and risky for the back...
