Gary,
My warm-up consists of rotational stretches (dynamic stretching), starting at the neck, spine and trunk then moving out and down. Rotating every body part in both directions, starting slowly and building speed. I've got a light sweat within a few minutes and I'm ready to roll.
It has been my experience that I don't believe I need to lift lightly or do a bunch of other exercises prior to the WOD. I feel it is a waste of my training time.
As far as a cool-down, I usually walk for about 5-10 minutes followed by a few static stretches. Sometimes, I will work on developing better static flexibility focusing on spine/lowerback/hamstrings, but usually it's just to feel good.

Dave
