i'd suggest doing the entire cfwu with sampson stretches, ohs, situps, back extensions, pullups, and dips, 2 or 3 sets of each. warmup your ENTIRE BODY, and then warmup with the specific exercise you're about to perform with heavier weight.

john's 'oil out of the pan' comment is funny, but also a good analogy. when i was younger i rarely worried about warming up and don't remember ever feeling like it made much of a difference. now in my 40's, it's an absolute must. maybe i wouldn't have some of the knee and shoulder pains i have now if i had warmed up properly in the past.
