Another form of stretching before sports training is a dynamic warm-up. Recent research has shown that dynamic stretching increases strength performance during the concentric phase of the movement performance, improves sprint time and improves vertical jump. Given this knowledge, the more it begins to apply dynamic rather than static stretching.
Researchers wanted to know how static stretching affects the performance of athletes through the vertical jump, how affects dynamic stretching and what results when an athlete has not stretching at all. The study wanted to show the activation of individual muscles in the vertical jump after the aforementioned warming. Muscle activation as measured by MVC (maximum voluntary force) and ITT-TV (interpolated twitch technique) Jump Manual Review
The results showed that the dynamic stretching contributed to the development of maximum voluntary force that has contributed to increasing vertical jump, which is also recorded electromyography showed that the muscles are activated differently during contraction in the vertical jump before static stretching, dynamic stretching and stretching when you do not there. The differences were small but significant.
Muscles vastus medialis , and gastrocnemius showed significant activation during vertical jump after a dynamic warm-up, as opposed to static stretching warm-up or when no none. The subjects of the study were the same age, height, weight and the same ability (measured by their maximum vertical leap). Among significant results, it was learned that the ability to jump 5% lower (due to muscle activation and the height of the jump) without stretching, compared to the situation where static stretching. The most significant result was the difference between static and dynamic warm-up, because after the dynamic warm-up jump was almost 9% better than the jump after static heating. Following these findings, studies with vertical leap, it's easy to conclude that this can manifest itself in other forms of movement, such as sprints, agility and reaction speed.
