Warm-up for Injury Prevention and Performance (WIPP)
The research team at Cincinnati SportsMedicine Research and Education Foundation know that athletes’ schedules are tight, and that making time for injury prevention conditioning is not always a priority in the off season. In addition, even the best off season conditioning requires in season attention, in order for athletes to maintain their desired level of fitness. With this in mind, the Sportsmetrics™ Warm-up for Injury Prevention and Performance program was developed.
WIPP is a specially designed warm-up, incorporating the four components of Sportsmetrics™ for maximum efficiency and conditioning. It integrates the proven components of Sportsmetrics™ for 20 minutes of nonstop muscle and joint preparation, plyometrics, strength and flexibility. WIPP also includes agility drills that can facilitate a quick transition into practice activities.
Dynamic Warm-up -2 minutes
Plyometric/Jump Drills -5 minutes
Strength Drills -7 minutes
Flexibility Exercises -4 minutes
Warm-up Agility Drills -2 minutes
The program is appropriate for use during training sessions for any sport that involves jumping, landing, cutting or twisting. Using WIPP keeps athletes constantly moving and taking advantage of the limited time in practice for muscle preparation. WIPP prepares muscle group and joints that are frequently injured: groin, hamstrings, low back, hip flexor and quads. An entire team can perform the WIPP program together.
