    I know a few people here could put together a pretty decent list and description of good proper warm-up exercises for the archives, if not just copy/paste an article into a post and archive it. It'd be nice to have available if it isn't already

    4 fast running/sprint laps to get the blood flowing. probably works out to be half a km or so.

    then depending on the workout i'll do a dynamic stretch or two for hipflexors/hammies or to loosen up the shoulders prior to use

    defranco's warmups are also great for days off when you want to do something physical but can't lift.... I always feel better recovered after doing some rolling and stretching on my day off.
