The current dataset belongs to a manuscript titled "Evolution of wheelchair racing propulsion technique over three weeks of wheeling practice on an instrumented ergometer in able-bodied novices". The aims of the study were to investigate the acquisition of wheelchair racing propulsion technique in a sample of novices and compare their technique to that of an experienced athlete. The dataset contains data of 15 subjects that completed a standardized three-week submaximal uninstructed practice protocol. During these three weeks, they practiced three sessions per week and performed three blocks of four minutes of exercise per session in a racing wheelchair on an instrumented wheelchair ergometer. Kinematics, physiological, and kinetics data were recorded.
