Changes in kinematic structure of stroke movements caused by exhaustion are
investigated in the paper. Young oarsmen at the age of 15–16 years having qualification
of the first sports category and the candidate for the master of sports took part in the
experiment. At passage of a distance of 1000 m on rowing ergometer, a registration of
dynamic parameters of every stroke with continuous videorecording has been made.
Using obtained videodata, the analysis of stroke movements in various phases of stroke
for a number of kinematic pairs has been carried out: oar–water, trunk–vertical, rotation of
trunk around vertical axis, trunk–shoulder, shoulder–forearm. Possibility of determination
of stroke movements parameters and estimations of change of stroke kinematic
characteristics under the influence of exhaustion are shown.
