    Literature Review Warming up before a game or an event has become such an important and common task that researchers have been continuously trying to find ways to improve performance through warming up. Researchers are still trying to figure out whether a 20-30 minute moderate intensity warm up is enough to reach someone’s optimal sprint performance. Many studies have found that the most influential factors that warm-ups have on sprint performance include the increase of muscle temperature (Faulkner, Ferguson, Hodder, & Havenith, 2013 & Zois, Bishop, Ball, & Aughey, 2011 & Sander, Keiner, Schlumberger, Wirth, & Schmidtbleicher, 2013 & Mohr, Krustrup, Nybo, Nielsen, & Bangsbo, 2003). This leads to the second part of the study to find out if external heating is more effective on someone’s sprint performance rather than actively warming up. A study investigating external muscle heating measured participants being water immersed of the legsand how it influenced the maximal output during a isokinetic sprint cycle (Faulkner, Ferguson, Hodder, & Havenith, 2013). Therefore, the muscle temperature of the legs has a huge role on someone’s sprint performance. The study of warm-ups comparative to sprint performance has been a wide interest for many athletes and trainers. It has been documented that the major contributing factor to post-warm-up performance improvement is the rise in muscle temperature. Generally within 3-5 minutes of warming up muscle temperature rapidly increases with…
