The National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) has developed National Standards for Sport Coaches (NSSC) with Standard 12 focusing on designing programs of training, conditioning, and recovery that properly utilizes exercise physiology and biomechanical principles. Recent research has shown the effectiveness of a dynamic warm-up routine over a static stretching routine. With advances in dynamic warm-ups, coaches can better prepare their athletes for physical activity. Knowing when the athlete should start and conclude his/her dynamic warm-up routine is critical to obtaining optimal performance which supports the vision of the USA Coaching Coalition by strengthening coaching as a profession. This presentation will provide coaches information to help determine the proper time frame involved in a dynamic warm-up routine to create effective Post Activation Potentiation (PAP).
