If I'm honest I do neglect this side of things, I always do warm up sets and 2 days out of 4 I bike to the gym but that's about it.

This was me for a long time. Still is at times. When I tore my pec, Donnie Thompson contacted me on FB. We talked for a bit about my warm ups, and be basically called me a dumbass haha. Now I have a set thing I do every day for warm ups.

A lot of people dont believe in static stretching, but my body doesnt like me if I dont do some. The guys who help with my training now are big on active warm ups. I do a set of things every session with them before we start.

In the end it varies from person to person, but active warm ups and recovery are important for most lifters.

I'm with the camp that you should be doing most of those things regularly.

Now that said, age, experience, old injuries or lack thereof, general fitness level or lack thereof, etc. all play a part in this too in my opinion. If I was 18 and generally fit overall again, I doubt I'd be doing any of these things, but being damn near 50 and not particularly fit at all, they are pretty much imperative.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
