Topic: Warm Ups
1. Have a Warm Up Routine for each lift.
2. Do it every time.
3. I think Warm ups shouldn’t be taxing, they are get your body prepared to workout. I also feel warm ups should involve some prehab and rehab exercises that also get the body ready to train.
4. Every warm up should include the McGill Big 3 (birddogs, side plank, curl up).
5. Your warm up should not be so intensive that it detracts from your ability to workout.
6. Bench day warm ups should include rotator cuff work.
7. Bench day warm ups should include thoughts of getting your body in the right position you bench in (i.e. hips loose, etc.).
8. Don’t rush through your warm ups just to get to the workout.
9. If you can’t figure out why something is in your warm up routine, get rid of it.
10. Look at the training logs to get some great ideas for warming up.
