    This is irrelevant to what I posted.

    Also, I understand that for warmups doing 6 or less reps and warming up near my 1RM will get my CNS ready for some heavy weight, but before I do those 6-rep warmup sets, do I just do 1 or 2 sets of 10-20 reps to increase bloodflow instead of the jump roping or jogging?
    No, but you could read the article if you couldn't figure out how to warm-up for various types of training.

    And how would you recommend warming up for a brutal set of 20-rep Squats? The article mentions warming up for strength, hypertrophy, and endurance. But I find 20-rep Squats to be a combination of strength and endurance...so how would I warmup?
    I would just do like a triple with that weight and then start it, or you could just do a set of like 14 with real light weight. The 20 rep squats are tough, but you really don't need to warm-up much for sets above 15.

    So, what you're saying is that it's unneccessary to increase your bloodflow to warmup for a lifting session? Or will doing the low-rep warmup sets increase bloodflow enough?

    I jump for 5 straight minutes before and after my workouts. I doubt theres any significant negative effect unless your an elite athlete or very anal retentive.

    Works for me. I find my daily 5k run has significantly reduced the difficulty of my skipping also but then my runs are very painful in themselves heh
