and method. Study design: post test same subject group design.
Settings: central reserve police force, Okhla, New Delhi.
Subjects: 30 healthy athlete volunteers, male, hockey player of age
18-24 years, participated in the study. Measurement: a total number of
30 homogenous subjects were randomly assigned into two groups, group A
and B, each group consisted of 15 subjects. The two warm-up

protocol. After all the warm-up protocols three maximal performance
tests, single leg vertical jump height, forty yard sprint and agility
shuttle run was done for each subjects.
Results. Repeated measure
ANOVA with post hoc analysis Bonferroni was used to compare all the
three performance tests after all the warm-up protocol. The result
indicates that there is highly significant difference after hot pack
with active warm-up then the ice pack with active warm-up
protocol in single leg vertical jump height, forty yard sprint
and agility shuttle run (P < 0.05).
