    This warm-up takes no more than ten minutes.

    great information; i can't tell you how much better i feel about lifting after a shot 15 minute warmup. the article has some great examples of different exercises/movements for this exact purpose.

    I never thought about activating the CNS as part of warm up, I'll have to try and incorporate this on friday.

    Great stuff. I was excited to see that I do a number of the things listed for my bench warm up. I have to remember to do it for my bench assistance and leg days.


    Supplements I currently take: Nitrean , BCAA , Creatine 500 , Multi-Plus , Fish Oil

    I thoroughly enjoyed this article and used the warm-up.

    This article ended with:

    Stay Tuned

    In my next article, I’ll discuss lower body warm-up and preparation concepts. As this article has done, the lower body warm-up article will provide you with the tools needed to get the most out of each lower body workout and develop strength and muscle faster than ever before.
    Is there an ETA on the lower body warm-up article?
