The athletes use different means and methods, in order to prepare for the activities or contests that follow. Different methods of warm-up, in the form of static and dynamic stretching, increase the amplitude range of motion, reduce muscle tension, are used for the prevention of injury and improve circulation. On the sample of 25 adult males, students of the Faculty of Sport and Physical Education, age 19 ±6 months, the effects of different warm-up methods were investigated. Manifestation of flexibility measured with a 6 motor tests. The aim of this study was to determine differences in the manifestation of flexibility depending on the applied static and dynamic methods of preparation for the work. The differences were determined by t-test for paired samples. The results show a statistically significant difference in range of motion after the static and dynamic stretching, and observed acute effects on increasing flexibility. There was no statistically significant difference in range of motion of joints after application of static and dynamic stretching methods on the sample.
