Default Warming Up

How do you guys usually warm up before the worksets? I've been doing the "Rippetoe" warmup starting with the bar and then doing 3 warm-up sets (5, 3 and 2 reps) with even increments to the working weight. Recently I tried to warm up even more thoroughly and instantly gained 2 reps on my bench press, which has been stalling for weeks on end.

This is the full warmup:
20 kg (bar) x 5
40 kg x 5
60 kg x 3
70 kg x 2
80 kg x 1
---
80 kg x 9 (workset)

Then I did the same for the deadlift and previously I couldn't lift 160 even once even though I could do 12 reps with 150. So I decided to do singles first and after that I did 8 reps with 160!
60 kg x 5
100 kg x 3
130 kg x 2
150 kg x 1
160 kg x 1
---
160 kg x 8

What do you think of that? It seems that my CNS needs a lot of prepping before it reaches its full capacity.
