    Com. xbloodyfeetx, it is an individual choice. For instance, I will "warm up" in the DL with two singles at 405 just to know how it feels that day. If I start lighter, heavier weights feel heavy. You might be different. But there is no proof that it is needed.

    For some reason i freeze up easily. I also like to snatch or high pull a heavy bell, makes the 24 feel lighter. I also do a shoulder protocal, t- spine work, foam roller before training, its getting ridiculus actually. should i incorporate that stuff during the workout instead. The t-spine stuff has saved my shoulder though and preps it real well. oh yea I do arm bars and naked get ups too, halos. If i dont brake inhalf at the rkc, maybe ill learn to ditch some of that stuff.

    ONE THOUSAND POUNDS!!!

    I always do joint mobility stuff before any sort of workout, working from neck to ankles. Nothing to break a sweat over, just big joint circles. If lifting weights, I will generally also do a very low-rep set with just the bar and two plates.

    Not overdoing a warmup is important, but IDK if I'd throw warming up out altogether.

    Keep it simple, a quick set of mobility "drills" is always good for the body.
    Call it a warm up or not.
    What's the problem?

    If I am gonna press a bell that's quite heavy for me I like to kick off the workout with a set of side-presses of that very bell - get the feel for the weight, get the lats going, easier on the shoulder to begin with. The presses do go much better after that.

    Comrades,
    I never believed in warm ups anyway I want to be ready to react to what ever happens when ever it happens so my workout is part of that readiness.

    Just my humble opinion

    Faizalenu, I've never been an advocate of a 5 min. jogging warm up, actually I wasn't aware that people even did that, those people can keep there Mr. Potato Head, Dr. Seuss, Mother Goose, Cat in the Hat, beanie weenie gyms. I thought it was a reference to just start out totally cold like no joint mobility drills or anything, but what he was saying is totally different. Makes more sense now. Thanks all.

    p.s. - Also Faizalenu, to further your point of why treadmills are a bad idea, it causes your legs to flap and only strengthen it in that range of motion. Run through the forest or at least on an uneven surface, preferably barefoot. Is it more dangerous? Only if you are not paying attention, which is what you should be doing when you're running, unlike on the treadmill.
