    How do I warmup for heavy strength-training sets?

    I know my warmups aren't very good, so I wanna ask you guys how to properly warm up. I'm asking how to warm up on the Incline BB Bench Press, just as an example. My 1RM is 120, and I stick with heavy sets with reps ranging from 1-3. So, what would be the best way to warmup? How many sets and how many reps, and at what % of my 1RM.

    Btw, I'll also be doing a jump rope warmup before doing these CNS warmups.
