    I hear plyometrics are good for warming up. Plyometric squat, pushups, etc.

    All I do is stretch.

    Surround myself in a circle of bone ash and recount the Horadrim prayer.


    ...and then run for 5 minutes and stretch.

    no stretching before

    light warmups with the exercises I will be performing, gradually increasing weight and lowering reps

    I do internal and external rotations for my rotator cuffs, then some windmills with my arms to get my shoulders warmed up
