The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of different synchronous push strategies on physiological parameters and temporal timing characteristics. Eight novice male able-bodied participants completed four counter-balanced conditions: two push strategies (constant pushing) and intermittent pushing (INT) at two push frequencies (40 and 70 pushes/min) at 27 W. The ANOVA main effects for frequency indicated that regardless of push strategy, oxygen cost and mechanical efficiency increased with an increase in push frequency ( p
