Flávio Antônio de Souza Castro is from Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, where he teaches swimming and leads the Research Group in Aquatics Sports.


Fins are equipment used in training sessions for different purposes, however there are few studies which compare spatiotemporal and physiological responses of this equipment’s in front-crawl in maximal intensity. The aim of this study was to identify and to compare the spatiotemporal and physiological parameters obtained with and without fins of 488 cm² area in maximal intensities of front crawl swimming.
