Abstract: Basketball is a high intensity sport which includes maximum sprints and repeated jumps throughout a game of 40 minutes [2]. Stretching is also usually incorporated pre-exercise as it has been suggested to improve muscle flexibility, prevent muscle injury and enhance physical performance [10]. The aim of the study is to compare the effectiveness of static stretching versus dynamic stretching combined with sports specific activity on jump performance and flexibility in recreational basketball players. Primary data will be collected from the patients and 40 recreational basketball players between 18-25 years of age will be included for the study. The outcome measures of this study are Vertical Jump Test and Sit & Reach Test. The intra-group analysis showed that both the treatments are effective in terms of increasing the value of both Vertical Jump Test and Sit & Reach Test Scores. However, the inter-group analysis showed that Treatment B (Dynamic Stretch) is effective than Treatment A (Static Stretch) in terms of average increase in both the measures.
