  author={Stephen A. Ingham and Barry W. Fudge and Jamie S. M. Pringle and Andrew M Jones},
Prior high-intensity exercise increases the oxidative energy contribution to subsequent exercise and may enhance exercise tolerance. The potential impact of a high-intensity warm-up on competitive performance, however, has not been investigated. Purpose: To test the hypothesis that a high-intensity warm-up would speed VO2 kinetics and enhance 800-m running performance in well-trained athletes. Methods: Eleven highly trained middle-distance runners completed two 800-m time trials on separate… Expand

A Plyometric Warm-Up Protocol Improves Running Economy in Recreational Endurance Athletes
The primary finding of this study was that the plyometric warm-up improved RE compared to the controlwarm-up, and an acute plyometric Warm-up protocol can improve RE in healthy adults. Expand
Warm-Up Striding Under Load Does Not Improve 5-Km Time Trial Performance in Collegiate Cross-Country Runners
Post-activation potentiation has proven to be an effective strategy to enhance performance for many tasks, but little research has been conducted specifically concerning endurance sport performance.Expand
The influence of warm-up duration on simulated rugby league interchange match performance
ABSTRACT Objective The study was conducted to understand the effects of a short (10 min) and a long (30 min) duration warm-up on subsequent readiness to exercise and movement during simulated rugbyExpand
The potentiation effects of high intensity warm ups in a middle distance context
n previous research (Long & French, 2013a, 2013b, 2013c, 2014a) we have explored how since the start of athletic competition, coaches have attempted to create innovative methods of preparing athletesExpand
A match-day analysis of the movement profiles of substitutes from a professional soccer club before and after pitch-entry
The match-day physical activities performed by soccer substitutes are profiled, focusing separately on the pre and post pitch-entry periods, to provide novel insights into the match- day demands faced by substitute soccer players. Expand


Effects of prior warm-up regime on severe-intensity cycling performance.
Data indicate that priming exercise performed in the moderate- and heavy-intensity domains can improve severe-intensity cycling performance by ~2-3%, the latter condition doing so despite a mild lactacidosis being present at exercise onset. Expand
Prior heavy exercise enhances performance during subsequent perimaximal exercise.
It is demonstrated that prior HE, which caused a significant elevation of blood [lactate], resulted in an increased time to exhaustion during subsequent perimaximal exercise presumably by enabling a greater aerobic contribution to the energy requirement of exercise. Expand
Effects of prior heavy exercise on energy supply and 4000-m cycling performance.
Very high intensity cycling performance was improved after both self-selected and prior heavy exercise, and athletes seem to manage their energy potential to exploit the available anaerobic capacity, independent of the aerobic contribution. Expand
Effects of prior very-heavy intensity exercise on indices of aerobic function and high-intensity exercise tolerance.
It is suggested that, following supra-CP priming, there is either a reduced depletable energy resource or a residual fatigue-metabolite level that leads to the tolerable limit before this resource is fully depleted. Expand
Effects of prior heavy exercise, prior sprint exercise and passive warming on oxygen uptake kinetics during heavy exercise in humans
It is concluded that the VO2 response to heavy exercise can be markedly altered by both sustained heavy-intensity submaximal exercise and by short-duration sprint exercise that induces a residual acidosis. Expand
Effects of Prior Exercise on Metabolic and Gas Exchange Responses to Exercise
In conclusion, ‘priming’ exercise has the potential to significantly enhance exercise tolerance and athletic performance, and the optimal combination of the intensity, duration and mode of ‘warm-up’ Exercise, andThe recovery period allowed before the criterion exercise challenge, remain to be determined.

Optimizing the "priming" effect: influence of prior exercise intensity and recovery duration on O2 uptake kinetics and severe-intensity exercise tolerance.
Exercise tolerance at 80%Delta was improved by 15% and 30% above control in the 70-9-80 and 70-20-80 conditions, respectively, but was impaired by 16% in the 80-3-80 condition. Expand
The effect of prior heavy exercise on the parameters of the power-duration curve for cycle ergometry.
It is concluded that the prior heavy exercise improved performance mainly because of an enhanced aerobic component of exercise energetics, as indicated by a higher CP and lower increment in the [La]b. Expand
Effects of prior exercise on oxygen uptake and phosphocreatine kinetics during high‐intensity knee‐extension exercise in humans
It is demonstrated that the V̇O2 responses relative to the work rate input for high‐intensity exercise are non‐linear, as are, it appears, the putative phosphate‐linked controllers for which [PCr] serves as a surrogate. Expand
Effect of prior multiple-sprint exercise on pulmonary O2 uptake kinetics following the onset of perimaximal exercise.
The data suggest that priming exercise, which apparently increases muscle O2 availability, does not influence the time constant of the primary-component VO2 response but does increase the amplitude to which VO2 may rise following the onset of perimaximal-intensity cycle exercise. Expand
