The effectiveness of two specific and two non-specific warm-ups on the vertical jump test for female athletes was the focus of this research. The four warm-up procedures were: (a) weighted jumping (WT), (b) submaximal vertical jumping (SUB), (c) stretching (ST), and (d) no warm-up (NW). To control for learning and fatigue, a counter-balanced design was used to test all participants over four different days. Thus all groups were tested in a predetermined order. Participants were 15 university female athletes (age 18 to 23 years). After warming up using one of the four warm-up procedures, three vertical jumps were measured and the best score was used for analysis. A single factors repeated measure analysis of variance and LSD post hoc tests revealed that the weighted jump warm-up procedure was statistically superior (p<0.01) to all other warm-up procedures. No warm-up was statistically inferior to all other warm-ups and submaximal vertical jumping was not statistically different than stretching. It was concluded; (a) performing a warmup is better than no warm-up, and (b) utilizing a weighted resistance-jumping warm-up will produce the highest scores when performing the vertical jump test for female athletes.

assessed using the TGMD-2. The remaining three skills included the skip and the vertical jump, which were both assessed using the TGMD ( Ulrich, 1985 ), and balance, which was assessed using the Get Skilled Get Active Manual ( NSW Department of Education and Training, 2000 ). Each of these instruments and

the same jump height in a maximum vertical jump. High jumpers are typically the taller athletes ( Tanner et al., 1964 ); this does not necessarily allow them to raise their center of mass more with respect to shorter people, but it means their center of mass is higher at the instant of take-off. Of

winning games. Similarly, a child who has not mastered the mature form of a basic vertical jump may be told, “You will have to play back row in volleyball” or “It might be best to put you in the game at a guard position so you won’t have to rebound.” In reality, a comparably greater focus should be placed
