Aim. The pur­pose of the inves­ti­ga­tion was to exam­ine in ­field con­di­tions the ­acute ­effects of warm­ing-up on low­er extrem­ity ­joints and ­trunk flex­ibil­ity in jun­ior ­team hand­ball ­players.
Methods. Forty-sev­en jun­ior ­team hand­ball ­players par­tic­i­pat­ed in ­this ­study form­ing an experi­ment (n=32) and a con­trol ­group (n=15). The ­first ­group per­formed warm­ing-up and stretch­ing exer­cis­es (20 min) where­as the sec­ond ­group ­only per­formed warm­ing-up exer­cis­es. Passive ­range of ­joint ­motion was deter­mined in hip flex­ion, hip exten­sion, hip abduc­tion, ­knee flex­ion, ­ankle dor­si­flex­ion and the ­trunk flex­ion ­using a gon­i­om­e­ter and a flex­om­e­ter.
Results. The warm­ing-up ses­sion ­induced a sig­nif­i­cant­ly ­increased ­range in all low­er extrem­ity ­joints and ­trunk flex­ion (p<0.01 to p<0.001) of ­both ­groups.
Conclusion. Flexibility ­improves as a ­result of mus­cle elon­ga­tion dur­ing warm­ing-up or ­even ­through an incor­po­rat­ed pathet­ic stretch­ing pro­gram.
