The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of a dynamic warm up (DWU) with a static-stretching warm up (SWU) on selected measures of power and agility. Thirty cadets at the United States Military Academy completed the study (14 women and 16 men, ages 18–24 years). On 3 consecutive days, subjects performed 1 of the 2 warm up routines (DWU or SWU) or performed no warm up (NWU). The 3 warm up protocols lasted 10 minutes each and were counterbalanced to avoid carryover effects. After 1–2…

THE EFFECTS OF STATIC AND DYNAMIC STRETCHING ON AGILITY PERFORMANCE
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of static and dynamic stretching protocols on agility performance in warm-up sessions. Twenty-three football players (mean ± SD age = 15,04± 0,77
Effects of static stretching following a dynamic warm-up on speed, agility and power
Static Stretching prior to sport has been shown to decrease force production in comparison to the increasing popularity of dynamic warm-up methods. However some athletes continue to use a bout of
THE EFFECTS OF TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF DYNAMIC WARM-UP AND STATIC STRETCHING ON POWER AND SPEED
Static stretching has often been found to decrease performance in power and speed activities, but dynamic warm-ups usually increase performance. We examined the effects of a mini-band warm-up, a
Acute effects of static and dynamic stretching on balance, agility, reaction time and movement time.
TLDR
A DS protocol is more appropriate than SS for activities that require balance, rapid change of running direction (agility) and movement time of the upper extremities and a DS protocol compared to NS performed significantly better in agility.
Effect of Static and Dynamic Stretching Warm-Up Methods on Agility, Speed and Leg Power Performance in School Level Netball Players
TLDR
The results of the analysis allow the authors to retain the hypothesis that a sequence of static and dynamic stretching combinations does not significantly affect the agility, speed, and leg power of school-level female netball athletes.
The Effect of Acute Stretching on Agility Performance
TLDR
Results indicate that in comparison to SS or NS, DS significantly improves performance on closed agility skills involving a 180° change of direction.
The effects of different types of warm-up exercises on golf performance
Background and objective: Most studies of golf warm-up exercises have focused on the differences between static and dynamic stretching, while relatively few have compared them to post-activation
Acute Effects of a Static Vs. a Dynamic Stretching Warm-up on Repeated-Sprint Performance in Female Handball Players
TLDR
Dynamic stretching improved repeated-sprint performance to a greater extent than static stretching and no stretching, and range of movement was measured before and after the warm-up protocols with a sit-and-reach test.
Four-Week Dynamic Stretching Warm-up Intervention Elicits Longer-Term Performance Benefits
TLDR
The findings suggest that incorporation of this specific 4-week DWU intervention into the daily preseason training regimen of wrestlers produced longer-term or sustained power, strength, muscular endurance, anaerobic capacity, and agility performance enhancements.

Effect of Warm‐Up and Flexibility Treatments on Vertical Jump Performance
TLDR
Performing PNF before a vertical jump test would be detrimental to performance, and a post hoc analysis revealed decreased vertical jump performances for the PNF treatment group.
Effect of acute static stretching on force, balance, reaction time, and movement time.
TLDR
It appears that an acute bout of stretching impaired the warm-up effect achieved under control conditions with balance and reaction/movement time.
THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT WARM‐UP STRETCH PROTOCOLS ON 20 METER SPRINT PERFORMANCE IN TRAINED RUGBY UNION PLAYERS
TLDR
It was concluded that static stretching as part of a warm-up may decrease short sprint performance, whereas active dynamic stretching seems to increase 20-m sprint performance.
Effects of running, static stretching and practice jumps on explosive force production and jumping performance.
TLDR
The results indicated that submaximum running and practice jumps had a positive effect whereas static stretching had a negative influence on explosive force and jumping performance and it was suggested that an alternative for static stretching should be considered in warm-ups prior to power activities.
An acute bout of static stretching: effects on force and jumping performance.
TLDR
The parallel duration of changes in ROM and quadriceps isometric force might suggest an association between stretch-induced changes in muscle compliance and isometricforce output.
The influence of stretching and warm-up exercises on Achilles tendon reflex activity.
TLDR
The changes in the force characteristics observed after the stretching treatment indicate improved muscle compliance that might reduce the risk of injury and a decreased EMG activity, which can be viewed as a performance-enhancing effect.
Reliability and Validity of the T‐Test as a Measure of Agility, Leg Power, and Leg Speed in College‐Aged Men and Women
The reliability and validity of the T-test as a measure of leg power, leg speed, and agility were examined. A total of 304 college-aged men (n = 152) and women (n = 152), selected from varying levels
Acute Effects of Stretching Are Not Evident in the Kinematics of the Vertical Jump
TLDR
Stretching prior to stretch-shortening cycle activities like the vertical jump results in small decreases in performance in some subjects, but the nonsignificant biomechanical changes suggest that neuromuscular inhibition may be the mechanism rather than changes in muscle stiffness.
Warm Up II Performance Changes Following Active Warm Up and How to Structure the Warm Up
TLDR
While there is a scarcity of well-controlled studies with large subject numbers and appropriate statistical analyses, a number of conclusions can be drawn regarding the effects of active warm up on performance.
