The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of different modes of stretching within a pre-exercise warm-up on high-speed motor capacities important to soccer performance. Eighteen professional soccer players were tested for countermovement vertical jump, stationary 10-m sprint, flying 20-m sprint, and agility performance after different warm-ups consisting of static stretching, dynamic stretching, or no stretching. There was no significant difference among warm-ups for the vertical… Expand

ACUTE EFFECTS OF WARM-UP COMBINED WITH DYNAMIC STRETCHING ON VERTICAL JUMP, SPRINT AND AGILITY IN YOUNG MALE SOCCER PLAYERS
The objective of this study was to investigate the acute effect of warm up combined with dynamic stretching on vertical jump, sprint and agility performance. Eighteen young male soccer players (age:Expand
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. Expand

Acute effects of dynamic stretching with and without warm-up on sprint and vertical jump performance
TLDR
Comparing the effect of warm-up with-and without-dynamic stretching on sprint time and vertical jump performance revealed that both warm- up protocols produced significantly greater results after completion of eitherwarm-up incorporating dynamic stretching or warm-ups only. Expand
Acute Effect of Different Combined Stretching Methods on Acceleration and Speed in Soccer Players
TLDR
It is concluded that soccer players performed better with respect to acceleration and speed, after dynamic and combined stretching, as they were able to produce more force for a faster execution. Expand

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. Expand
THE ACUTE EFFECTS OF STATIC AND BALLISTIC STRETCHING ON VERTICAL JUMP PERFORMANCE IN TRAINED WOMEN
TLDR
The results indicated that there was no significant difference in VJ scores as a result of static or ballistic stretching, elapsed time, or initial flexibility scores, suggesting that stretching prior to competition may not negatively affect the performance of trained women. Expand
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. Expand
ACUTE EFFECTS OF STATIC STRETCHING ON PEAK TORQUE IN WOMEN
TLDR
Overall, these findings indicated that static stretching impairs maximal force production, and strength and conditioning professionals should consider this before incorporating static stretching in preperformance activities. Expand
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. Expand
Inhibition of Maximal Voluntary Isokinetic Torque Production Following Stretching Is Velocity‐Specific
TLDR
It appears, therefore, that the deleterious impact of stretching activities on maximal torque production might be limited to movements performed at relatively slow velocities. Expand

TLDR
It was hypothesised that the relatively greater forces transmitted from the skeletal system to the musculature of the stiff subjects reduced their ability to attenuate the higher eccentric loads due to less effective contractile dynamics and greater levels of reflex induced inhibition. Expand
A randomized trial of preexercise stretching for prevention of lower-limb injury.
TLDR
A typical muscle stretching protocol performed during preexercise warm-ups does not produce clinically meaningful reductions in risk of exercise-related injury in army recruits, but fitness may be an important, modifiable risk factor. Expand

TLDR
Stretching is generally effective for inducing acute and chronic changes in ROM, but its effects on MTEN stiffness and the optimum stiffness for physical performance are not so clear. Expand
The effect of static stretch and dynamic range of motion training on the flexibility of the hamstring muscles.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that, although both static stretch and DROM will increase hamstring flexibility, a 30-second static stretch was more effective than the newer technique, DROM, for enhancing flexibility. Expand
