Re: Strenght

Bike or rowing = light cardio. Run. Swim. Jump rope. Jumping jacks. Play tag. Get your heart rate up, your blood flowing and you joints and muscles loose.

C'mon man, I know you're still in school and just starting out, but some of these things you have to be able to figure out yourself. Either that or you are just trying to find excuses not to do things, which is definitely not the way to start a successful program.

You don't need general warm-ups for strength training. You may want to do some foam rolling if you are right, but that is about it. The ideal of the general low intensity warm-up for strength training is a stupid one. It does not help. Exercise specific warm-ups are all that are needed.

+1 on this ^.


Heres what i do:
10 minutes foam rolling
Some rotations / swings of the soon-to-be-used bodyparts
a set of the exercise with the bar
a set of the exercise with 1 plate
half a set of the exercise with 80% of the work set amount
Work sets.

It can be helpful to raise core body temperature if you work out early in the morning.

Not needed. Let's say you are squatting, a few sets of warm-ups with the specific movement will warm-up the involved musculature more than sufficiently.
