The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of a specific inspiratory warm up on inspiratory muscle strength by MIP values, endurance by SMIP and time values and the effects on 3 km run performance measured by time. Nine healthy club level distance runners completed one familiaization session and three further sessions involving, three 3 km runs on a 200 m indoor track on separate days. The three 3 km nrns were preceded by one of three warm ups, a specific inspiratory warm up plus a general running warm up (SWUplus), a general running warm up (rWU) or no warm up (NWU), participants completed all three warm ups once on the separate days. Inspiratory muscle values were measured during each session at three different points, prior to wann up, after waÍn up and after the 3 km run. The results found no significant diflerence (p>0.05) between the three types of warm up and three inspiratory trails for MIP and time values and for SMIP values inspiratory trials. However a significant difference (F z: 7.93,p<0.05), (F z: 10.74, p<0.05) was found between the SMIP values three types of warm up and the 3 km run times respectively, where both the SMIP values and 3 km run times found both the WU and SWUplus to significantly differ (p<0.05) from the NWU, while no significant difilerence (p>0.05) was found between the WU and SWUplus for both SMIP values and 3 km times. Concluding two main furdings: Firstly a SWUplus has no extra benefits on inspiratory muscles strength, endurance or 3 km run times over a normal running warm up. Secondly both the SWUplus and WU had beneficial et[ects over NWU on performance time and SMIP values. This suggested the practice of a SWUplus has no physiological benefit on performance over a normal running warm up, but some form of warm up does benefit performance over NWU. Implications may suggest performers should perform some form of active warm up prior to training and competition to enhance performance. However flaws in the method are likely to have affected the poor support of the SWUplus furdings.
