Warming up before performing rigorous physical activity is typically done to increase range of motion and improve athletic performance. Common warm-up techniques in college athletics include static stretching, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching, dynamic warm-ups, and sport-specific activities. However, the type of warm-up routine used in the college setting varies based on a variety of factors including coaching or therapist experience, education, and preference. Recent… Expand
Warm-Up on Postural Stability
TLDR
As a conclusion, a longer warm-up protocol may deplete the monopod postural stability of athletes. Expand
Impact of different warm-up procedures on a 50-yard swimming sprint
TLDR
Individual differences revealed that some athletes could benefit from a plyometric/swimming warm-up in order to improve overall swimming performance, especially when considering that a few hundredths of a second would make a significant difference in the outcome of a given race. Expand

TLDR
A moderate cardiovascular demand in simulations of BJJ combats is considered, a little bit lower than the value of the studies mentioned above, to help coaches and physical trainers in prescription of training programs. Expand

The Impact of Different Warm-Up Protocols on Vertical Jump Performance in Male Collegiate Athletes
TLDR
The results showed that there was a significant difference (P < .05) in VJ performance between the warm-up groups; however, the mean for the static stretching group was significantly lower than the means for the other 3 groups. Expand
ACUTE EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT WARM‐UP PROTOCOLS WITH AND WITHOUT A WEIGHTED VEST ON JUMPING PERFORMANCE IN ATHLETIC WOMEN
TLDR
Warm-up protocols that include dynamic exercise may be a viable method of enhancing jumping performance in athletic women as compared to stationary cycling and static stretching and suggest that it may be desirable for athletic women to perform dynamic exercises with a weighted vest on some movements prior to the performance of the long jump.

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. Expand
The Effects of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation and Dynamic Stretching Techniques on Vertical Jump Performance
TLDR
The results of this study showed that 3 different warm-ups did not have a significant affect on vertical jumping and there were no gender differences between the 3 differentwarm-ups. Expand
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. 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
The effect of three different warm-up intensities on kayak ergometer performance.
TLDR
It was concluded that if the WU is too intense, the associated metabolic acidemia may impair supramaximal performance by reducing the anaerobic energy contribution and/or interfering with muscle contractile processes. Expand
