I don't need to waste time on certain areas, especially when that time is too short to do anything anyway. I'll spend more time where I need it. IT bands, quads, glutes, bottom of feet.
3) Specific mobilization drills.
I need anterior hip capsule and ankle mobility, bad.
4) Dynamic warm up.
Do it. Don't skip it.
That's pretty much what I did with Tom, my quads were burning by the time we got to lifting but I went ahead and set a big PR. All because getting into positions was far easier.
I think this is one situation where specific stretching is of huge benefit prior to training. What you lose from stretching prior is more than what you make up for being able to get into the correct positions.
Time for me to do a light session, stretching first!
