Acute effect of self-myofascial release exercise volume to vertical jump performance and flexibility in well-trained women volleyball players


The aim of this study is to analyze the acute implications of myofascial releasing exercises with alternating periods (30-60 seconds) of self-training on the flexibility of lower extremity and vertical jump performance. Method: 18 female volleyball players playing in the same team participated in this study. The athletes were asked to take part in three different exercise routines as control, 30 and 60 seconds with the foam roller with 48 hours between each session using a random crossover design. At the end of each session, the athletes were tested on flexibility (S&R) and jumping performance (CMJ). Results: The results of the study have shown that there was no statistical difference between the three routines (p>0.05). Conclusion: In conclusion, both the 30-second and the 60-second foam roller exercises yielded similar effects, and when compared to the control group no negative effects regarding flexibility and vertical jumping performance were observed. For this reason, foam roller exercises can be used as an alternative warm-up method by athletes both before training sessions and competitions.
