Acute effect of dynamic stretching versus combined static dynamic stretching on speed performance among male Sukma Sarawak 2016 sprinters
The purpose of the study is to compare the effects of dynamic stretching and combined static dynamic stretching on speed performance among male Sukan Malaysia (SUKMA) Sarawak 2016 sprinters. 10 male sprinters (age=16-19 years old) were tested under two different stretching protocols which were dynamic stretching alone and combined static dynamic stretching. All of the participants were sprinters that qualify for SUKMA Sarawak 2016. Participants underwent the dynamic stretching alone and combined static dynamic stretching in counterbalanced order with 1-week wash-out period between both stretching protocols. Participants were tested using the 20-meter sprint test after each intervention. The result showed a significant sprint time difference between both interventions (p<0.007). Dynamic stretching alone (3.16±0.090) showed a faster time to complete the 20-meter sprint test compared to combined static dynamic stretching (3.39±0.239). In conclusion, dynamic stretching alone is better than combined static dynamic stretching prior to speed performance. Combining static and dynamic stretching activities prior to speed performance is not recommended.
