The Workout Warmup go too list
Post your favorite warm up routine. What do you do before starting your working sets? If you have a specific leg, shoulder, or chest warm up, post them each.

My shoulder warm up includes:
Light plate rotations (arm swings)
Scarecrows using same plate
Tube routine
  • Y's
  • Inner shoulder rotations
  • Outer Rotations
  • Flyes
  • Reverse Flyes
  • Baseball throws
Light DB OHP
Empty bar lifts

My warm up routine:

I do a set of 10 of each of these in pretty much this order, except for flies. I do LOTS of flies.

Stretch hamstrings, quads, lower back.
KB swings, goblet squats, shrugs
BB squats, OHP, RDL, row, Hang Clean Press
DB alternating sets of lateral and rear delt flies between warmup sets of first lift.

KB: 35#
BB: 45#
DB: 5#

For overhead work and general squat work (shoulder warm-up):

Broomhandle dislocations (reducing the width of the grip between subsequent reps)
Broomhandle rolls

Normally done until the shoulders feel "looser" but not fatigued.

Then move on to light reps of the exercise.

Walk from the trainstation to the gym (10 mins), then walk up to the barbell.

Mine is pretty simple.

Pre-Workout: Jump Rope (Get the blood flowing)

Then I always do 1 warm-up set, 10 reps with a empty barbell.

Follwed by 2 lighter sets and then my working sets.

My warmup sets follow a pattern close to this:

Bar x 10-15 reps
35% of 1RM x 10 reps
45% of 1RM x 5 reps
55% of 1RM x 3 reps
65% of 1RM x 1 rep
75% of 1RM x 1 rep
85% of 1RM x 1 rep

If you are working around 65% for the day, you simply stop after the 55%.

I noticed very little static stretching, rolling, or even cardio in the lists so far. Seem jumping rope is a favorite and then into light lifts.

I have a hot shower, then I just start lifting. I do lots of reps at first and then crank up the weight.
