    Default Does warming up have anything to do with being warm?

    If I go through my warmup and do my workout in a cold unheated shed as opposed to in a heated building, is there a difference in how my body will respond to the warmup and workout? Do I need to feel warm in order to be properly warmed up?

    The purpose of a warmup is to be ready to train. Will they be different in warm and cold - yes...

    I usually consider my warmup a 'limber up'. It's always freezing where I train so if I get much warmer I see it as a bit of a waste of energy. I do more mobility and hopping about, goblet squats, leaning into a light kettlebell overhead etc. to get all my patterns grooved.

    A warm up prepares the various aspects of your physiology for the exercise ahead. It is meant to enhance performance and reduce injury risk.

    It really depends on your workout type as well. i.e. a warm up for a game of football (soccer) will be different from say a 5x5 routine. And IIRC Pavel says in PTTP that you jump straight in at your heavy weights.

    Some people warm up, so don't. For weights, I generally do a general mobility warm up, and then ramping sets for each exercise type. For KB training, ETK has a nice simple warm up.

    "Muscles contract harder when warm" (Louis Simmons, in one of this articles). However, for real-life performance and injury proof abilities, warming up is counter productive - just my experience.

    That's a really good way to phrase the question. You just have to know your own body when and when you are ready to do what you are going to do.

    I never really look at warm-ups as literally increasing my core temperature, unless I'm about to do some running.

    For strength training, mobility coupled with high-rep isolation work is usually pretty good. So if your shoulder external rotation is lagging, or you wanna do some wrist conditioning/strengthening, I'd do ir first and foremost (as a Warm-up) before the other strength trainijgn.

    That's essentially what I've always considered it as well. I usually do end up feeling warmer, but that's never really been my goal exactly. I just want to feel more limber before I start doing my "real" lifts.
