Re: The case for High intensity warmups

I think you might not realize the body's plasticity with respect to energy systems for a given task. Your body will utilize the most efficient energy system (and switch back and forth etc.) for a given imposed task. You don't need to trick it into working. Now, sure, running for a million miles and then trying to strength train is stupid, so to that extent some planning is good. The concept you are presenting would be more accurately applied to the nervous system.
