dc.descriptionPhysical activity causes microtrauma, fascial scar tissue, and other muscle damage leading to delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Foam rolling (FR) has been shown to be an effective cool down technique to reduce DOMS. Currently, there is no research regarding the use of FR as a warm-up for aerobic training. PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to examine the effect of various warm-up techniques on aerobic performance in Division III soccer players. METHODS: Seven male and nine female Division III soccer players completed the study. Baseline measurements of each participant were taken including height, weight, and body composition. Participants performed the Multistage Fitness Test three times with 1 week in between trials. Before each test, participants completed a warm-up of either FR, dynamic stretching (DS), or a combination of both (FR/DS). RESULTS: There was no significant difference in VO2max between the warm-up techniques (FR: 44.44 ± 5.11 mL/kg/min, DS: 43.34 ± 4.84 mL/kg/min, FR/DS: 43.91 ± 5.10 mL/kg/min). CONCLUSION: FR or FR/DS can be as effective as DS when used for a warm-up prior to aerobic performance.
