Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Acute effects of different types of warm-up exercise on performance
by Genin, Michelle, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 146; 1523038
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to examine the acute effects of different types of warm-up exercise on flexibility and jump performance. Seventy two subjects (38 males, 34 females) performed static stretching (SS), dynamic stretching (OS), self-myofascial release with a foam roller (FR), and no warm-up prior (C) to the sit and reach test (SR), vertical jump (VJ), and standing broad jump (SBJ). Outcome measurements included SR measurement, VJ height, and SBJ distance. Data was analyzed using a one-way repeated measures analysis of variance. The difference in pre and post warm-up SR measurements were statistically significant (p = 0.000) following SS, OS, and FR in comparison to C. There were no significant effects in VJ height (p = 0.995), or in SBJ length following any of the warm-up protocols ( p = 0.820). It was concluded that SS, OS, and FR have no acute effects on jump performance, but may increase low back and hamstring flexibility.
