A majority of basketball athletes do a warm-up up prior to playing basketball.
This study examines the effects of aerobic warm-up, static stretching and dynamic
movement on female athlete’s basketball performance. Fourteen female NCAA Division
III athletes were recruited to participate in this study. They were assigned different
treatments on three different testing days. The treatments included different combinations
of aerobic warm-up, static stretching and dynamic movement. They were tested for
maximum vertical jump, sprint time and shooting efficiency. There were no differences between warm-up treatments for any of the tests. Therefore by completing a warm-up
prior to playing basketball, the female basketball player is ready for anaerobic performance.
