Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of various warm-up protocols (dynamic (DYN), static (STAT), and a no warm up control (CONT)) on speed and accuracy of a lacrosse shot. Ten NCCA D-3 men’s varsity lacrosse athletes completed 3 visits for this randomized, within subjects crossover design study. The mean±SD age, height, weight, and body fat were 19.7±1.3 yrs, 182.50±6.86cm, 86.78±10.66 kg, and 7.64±2.56 percent, respectively. Subjects were led through the assigned warm up by the researcher, followed by 3 shots at each of 3 different locations on the field separated by 30 seconds of rest. Shot speed and accuracy were assessed. Maximal shot speed attained was significantly faster with DYN compared to STAT (92.43±2.97mph vs 88.77±3.71mph, p = 0.022) but neither DYN or STAT differed from CONT. Average shot speed neared statistical significance (F(2, 18)=3.495, p=0.052), with the greatest differences again between DYN and STAT. Number of missed shots was not affected by warm-up. DYN may be advantageous for maximizing lacrosse shot speed, a factor that could affect the outcome of a game.
