records. BMI was calculated using the following formula: BMI = weight (kg)/[height (cm)/100] 2 . Isokinetic Quadriceps Strength and Knee Pain The maximum isokinetic quadriceps strength was assessed using the MYORET, RZ-450 (Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd, Kobe, Japan). Before the muscle strength test, the

). In the last preliminary session, 3 days following maximum strength testing, all swimmers performed 5 repetitions of 200 m (5 ×200 m) at intensities corresponding to 60%, 70%, 80%, 90%, and 100% of the 200-m maximum speed, each repetition starting every 5 minutes and 30 seconds with a push off start

. From the starting position, participants were told to lower themselves to 90° of elbow flexion while maintaining 30° of shoulder abduction (matching the strength testing protocol). If participants descended past 90° of elbow flexion, the safety harness would stop the forward movement of their body to
