The purpose of this study was to analyse the influences of the motion angles of the knee and elbow joints on the standing long jump performance of high school students. Twenty-nine participants were assigned to either a control group to perform static and dynamic joint exercises or an experimental group to perform basic sprinting drill warm-up exercises. Both groups performed pre-, control, and post-standing long jump tests. Motion analysis of the knee and elbow joints was conducted in the sagittal plane by using video recording. Our findings support that basic sprint drill warm-up exercises can enhance the jump length in the youth. The implementation of warm-up exercises with basic sprint drills and motion analysis could be useful for determining the ranges of motion of the elbow and knee joints and improving standing long jump performance.
