Herman, SL and Smith, DT. Four-week dynamic stretching warm-up intervention elicits longer term performance benefits. J Strength Cond Res 22: 1286-1297, 2008-The purpose of this study was to determine whether a dynamic-stretching warm-up (DWU) intervention performed daily over 4 weeks positively influenced power, speed, agility, endurance, flexibility, and strength performance measures in collegiate wrestlers when compared to a static-stretching warm-up (SWU) intervention. Twenty-four male… Expand

Paper Mentions

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. Expand
The effect of warm-up, static stretching and dynamic stretching on hamstring flexibility in previously injured subjects
TLDR
Static stretching also increased hamstring flexibility, whereas dynamic did not, in agreement with previous findings on uninjured controls, and the hypothesis that increased flexibility improves outcomes is validated. Expand
Eight weeks of dynamic stretching during warm-ups improves jump power but not repeated or single sprint performance
TLDR
The inclusion of ADS and SDS within the regular warm-up of an 8-week training programme can improve not only flexibility but also jump power measures as well. Expand
Effects of dynamic and static stretching within general and activity specific warm-up protocols.
TLDR
Results would support the use of static stretching within an activity specific warm-up to ensure maximal ROM along with an enhancement in sprint performance. Expand
Resistance Training vs. Static Stretching: Effects on Flexibility and Strength
TLDR
The results of this preliminary study suggest that carefully constructed full-range RT regimens can improve flexibility as well as the typical SS regimens employed in conditioning programs. Expand
Aerobic activity before and following short-duration static stretching improves range of motion and performance vs. a traditional warm-up.
TLDR
Results indicate that the ASA method can provide ROM improvements for 30 min with either facilitation or no impairment in performance, which may be especially important for athletes who substitute later into a game with minimal time for a full warm-up. Expand
A review of the acute effects of static and dynamic stretching on performance
TLDR
Generally, a warm-up to minimize impairments and enhance performance should be composed of a submaximal intensity aerobic activity followed by large amplitude dynamic stretching and then completed with sport-specific dynamic activities. Expand
Comparison of the acute effects of static and dynamic stretching exercises on flexibility, agility and anaerobic performance in professional football players
Cite this article as: Kurt C, Fırtın İ. Comparison of the acute effects of static and dynamic stretching exercises on flexibility, agility and anaerobic performance in professional football players.Expand
Ten Minutes of Dynamic Stretching Is Sufficient to Potentiate Vertical Jump Performance Characteristics
TLDR
The volume and the intensity associated with 10 minutes of dynamic stretching were sufficient to provide the potentiation of vertical jump characteristics and additional conditioning activities may promote fatigue processes, which do not permit further potentiation. Expand
The effectiveness of a dynamic warm-up in improving performance in college athletes.
TLDR
Although a dynamic warm-up is generally thought to be superior to other commonwarm-up techniques, there remains uncertainty regarding the best method to prepare for intercollegiate athletic participation. Expand

DYNAMIC VS.STATIC‐STRETCHING WARM UP: THE EFFECT ON POWER AND AGILITY PERFORMANCE
TLDR
The results of this study indicate a relative performance enhancement with the DWU, and the utility of warm up routines that use static stretching as a stand-alone activity should be reassessed. Expand
Acute effects of passive muscle stretching on sprint performance
TLDR
It appears that pre-event stretching might negatively impact the performance of high-power short-term exercise. Expand
EFFECTS OF DIFFERENTIAL STRETCHING PROTOCOLS DURING WARM‐UPS ON HIGH‐SPEED MOTOR CAPACITIES IN PROFESSIONAL SOCCER PLAYERS
TLDR
Examining the effects of different modes of stretching within a pre-exercise warm-up on high-speed motor capacities important to soccer performance found dynamic stretching during the warm up was most effective as preparation for subsequent high- speed performance. 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
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
Static and Dynamic Acute Stretching Effect on Gymnasts' Speed in Vaulting
TLDR
The findings of the present study indicate the inhibitory role of an acute static stretching in running speed in gymnasts’ speed during vaulting in gymnastics. Expand
EFFECTS OF STATIC STRETCHING FOR 30 SECONDS AND DYNAMIC STRETCHING ON LEG EXTENSION POWER
TLDR
It is suggested that static stretching for 30 seconds neither improves nor reduces muscular performance and that dynamic stretching enhances muscular performance. Expand
ACUTE EFFECTS OF STATIC STRETCHING ON PEAK TORQUE AND MEAN POWER OUTPUT IN NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION DIVISION I WOMEN'S BASKETBALL PLAYERS
TLDR
The findings indicated that the static stretching had no impact on PT or MP during maximal, voluntary concentric isokinetic muscle actions in collegiate women's basketball players, suggesting that trained athletes may be less susceptible to the stretching-induced force deficit than untrained, nonathletes. 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
Acute Effects of Static and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching on Muscle Strength and Power Output.
TLDR
Both static and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching caused similar deficits in strength, power output, and muscle activation at both slow and fast velocities, which suggests the need for practitioners to consider a risk-to-benefit ratio when incorporating static or proprioception neuromUScularfacilitation stretching.
