Just as the title says.

I've been doing a warm up like this:

1 plate for 6 reps
2 plates for 5 reps
2 plates + 10 plate for 5 reps
3 plates + 10 plate for 3 reps (325 pounds).

Does this sound about right?

135x6
225x5
245x5
335x3

Do the least amount of work that leaves you 100% ready to lift heavy.

Start with warming up your whole body. Do some light cardio, anything to break a sweat without killing yourself. After that, do an easy 6-12 rep set. You have to keep in mind that it should be EASY. It doesn't mean you're supposed to grab a 2.5 pound weight plate and start going up and down with, what I mean by easy is you should use a weight that's good to get the blood flowing WITHOUT REACHING MUSCLE FATIGUE.

After that , it's time for you "real warm-up." This is the point where you have to start acclimating your sets. Let's say you're aiming for your 1 rep max, start with 70% and lift it 5 times, 80% and lift it 3 times, 85% and lift it 3 times, 90% and lift it once, and then you can shoot for your heavy single!

Acclimation sets vary from alot of powerlifters. I have no idea which is the best one. You're gonna have to ask that to the pros.
