hmmm I've been looking at some routines i found on this forum and I got confused. Like say if you're working out your Chest, should I start lifting the heavy sets first instead of the light sets???

It really depends, If i am going real heavy I would just start real heavy first. But If i am just doing heavy i might start out with lightweight. And in the end just keep in mind everything is just lightweight.

im not an expert but shouldnt u warm up with light weights and wouldnt that warm up count and u can go straight to heavy weights
I warm up with very light weight--usually 2 sets--then get the lead out.

well surely Kromax is 101% rite ......light weight warm up is a must......i would say dips would be a better choice for warming up ur chest
I personally feel that heavy sets first allows you to tackle the heavy weights with all of your energy - but thats just my opinion. However now I am doing 5x5 so the weight doesnt change.
i agree with what monstar says however i always do one set of warmup light weight and some days i pyramid sometimes ill do light 12 reps and increase weight and do 8 or 10 reps and then increase and do 4 or 6 reps sometimes i do the exact opposite.. it just depends however i only change things every 6 weeks
i do a warm up.
my warm up can include heavy warms up relative to my working weight weight.
eg i may do a 1 rep warm up set with 20 pounds less than a working set for 4 reps.
I like to get my body ready for heavy weight.
