Thank you in advance for any help given. I am doing the SS workout and really I am looking for advice on what are the appropriate amount of warm up sets.
I know this can vary from person to person but I am really not sure on how many warm up sets are needed before lifting heavy. Previously I thought doing a warm up set of 25 reps and then proceeding to a 5 rep set with something heavier was adequate.
After reading a bunch of posts where guys progress from like squating 100lbs 5 times, then say 140 x 5, then say 180 x 5, and finally going heavy for 200lbs x 5 for that person. You would you then do the 200lbs 5 reps x 3 sets.
So is there kind of a basic guidline or general rule of thumb of like 3 progressively heavier warm up sets, before going for your heavy 5 rep working set?
My apologies if this has been posted elsewhere and on the noobtastic questions.
Do the least amount of work necessary for you to feel entirely warmed up for your work sets. That is highly dependent on the individual though.
