dc.description.abstractThe purpose of our research study was to examine the effects of a 6 week chronic static stretching program on gastrocnemius flexibility and vertical jump height. Twenty-five students participated in this study. Subjects were tested for bilateral ankle ROM and vertical jump height at 0, 3, and 6 weeks. The protocol consisted of four stretches, for five repetitions, done once a day, 5 days a week, for 6 weeks. The results showed that there was no significant difference (p ≤ 0.05) in ROM and vertical jump heights between the beginning and end of the 6 week stretching program. No significant correlations were found between change in ankle ROM and change in vertical jump height.en
