CrossFit Warmup

I've been doing the CrossFit warmup ever since I read it. I think it's good, but I tend to be too cold to do the pullups so soon. I slightly pulled my left shoulder a couple of weeks ago and it took some time to get better. Any recommendations?

Throw in a 500m row or 400m run or both prior to the excercises.

Re: CrossFit Warmup

I always do pass-throughs first before any shoulder work. It helps you work out the kinks with that motion before doing it with your bodyweight hanging from the shoulders.

Re: CrossFit Warmup

Was going to create a new thread for this, but I figure the answer to my question will help you as well.

Today in the Fran demo by Miranda, her warmup is captioned "Spealler Warmup"

I have seen the video somewhere on here but cannot find it. Could someone either post that video or a description of what he does for his warmup routine? And for that matter, does anyone have resources to other warmups of crossfit's elite?

Thanks for the help,
Drew

I'd also like to see what the Spealler Warm up is.

Re: CrossFit Warmup

Are you kipping...start with just a hang on the bar for 10-15 secs..then do some deadhang pull-ups, then hit your kipping...

Re: CrossFit Warmup

I start all my workouts off with arm circles, shrugs, press press flings, etc for a couple minutes before I do any pullups.

Re: CrossFit Warmup

I usually start with a medium paced 2k row, some limbering/full range of motion head to toe movements, followed by a couple rounds of the CFWU. I'm plenty warm by the time I get on the bar.
