Description

Warming up prior to exercise is thought to improve performance. However, the most appropriate warm-up strategy for team-sport athletes remains elusive. The purpose of this study was to determine the impact different warm-up intensities, ranging from a walk to very hard running, had on team-sport running performance. Higher warm up intensities resulted in a greater level of physiological stress but had surprisingly little, if any, effect on running performance. It therefore appears that the intensity at which an athlete warms up has little bearing on their match running performance.
