The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of different warm-up protocols on power and speed performance in male high school football players. METHODS: The male football athletes (N = 22; Mean age = 15.7 + 0.767) in training, varied in training age, team level, age in years, and school year. The participants performed both dynamic and static warm-up protocols on separate days. These warm-up protocols were followed by five fitness tests, a vertical jump, 20 yard dash, broad jump, 5-10-5 shuttle run, and a kneeling ball press. The two trials (dynamic and static) were separated by two weeks. Dynamic stretches included stretches such as, walking quadriceps stretch, high kicks, and knee hug to lunge. Static stretches includes stretches such as, hurdler stretch, butterfly stretch, and pectoral stretch. RESULTS: Each testing variable was compared using t-test in search for significant differences (p < .05) between static and dynamic warm-ups. There was no significant statistical difference between the two warm-up protocols for all groups. Vertical Jump = t (21) = 1.274, p = 0.217; 20 Yard Dash = t (21) = 0.169, p = 0.867; Broad Jump = t (21) = 0.681, p = 0.503; 5-10-5 = t (21) = -0.313, p = 0.757; Kneeling Ball Press = t (21) = -1.510, p = 0.146. CONCLUSION: From this study it can be stated that all subjects that participated in this research showed minor differences in results on fitness tests between the two warm-up protocols.
