An active warm-up period prior to competitive soccer matches is habitual practice for most athletes. Typically these routines far exceed the duration recommended by the literature and may negatively affect subsequent soccer-related performance. High-intensity, short-duration warm-ups can improve subsequent power measures, however their application to soccer-specific tasks has not yet been investigated. Additionally, relatively little is known regarding the effects of high-intensity, short-duration warm-ups when implemented during half-time intermissions.
