General Warm Ups
I just want to know how many of you guys out there use a general warm up??
I know some people do a few minutes on the bike or treadmill, but I also think a lot of people just hop in and start lifting with light sets.
I have been using a general warm up on my lower body days, and try to do it on the upper days too. I use the warm up that is explained in the juggernaut book, but a little abbreviated.
50 jumping jacks, 20 BW squats, some lunges
Roll Out just enough on my back, hamstrings, quads, hips, glutes (this is very limited just enough to get blood flowing in the muscles)
Hip Mobility drills, including hip stretching
Maybe some leg swings as I start my light sets.
I think this has made a significant difference in my performance on my lower body days.
What do you guys do to prepare for a workout?
