    Thanks In Advance!!!

    Depends on how heavy you're lifting. Obviously a guy squatting 600 for his 8 repper is going to need more warm ups than a guy that's doing 135 for his 8 set. For me it usually goes..

    Shoulders - 3
    Chest - 3
    Triceps - 2
    Biceps - 2
    Forearms - 1
    Back thickness (deads) - 4
    Back thickness (rows) - 3
    back width - 3-4
    Quads - 4
    Hams - 3
    Calves - 3

    Hope I didn't forget anything...

        i usually just do 1 sort of big build up set, i dont know how well it would work for super heavy weights like some of the guys on here are lifting b/c i'm not as strong as they are - not yet anyway.

        something like this for most exercises for me. say the workset is 225 just to throw out a number.

        135X8
        155X3
        185X3
        205X1
        225X

        so i just slap on some plates, and do a rep or 2 until i get up to the working weight.

          Raul, I guess we are different. I have experimented with what you said in the past and I feel that if I do a couple very light sets of the exercise that I am about to do for shoulders, triceps, whatever...that I am alot stronger on that exercise rather than just relying on my chest workout to be my warm up. Sort of like how alot of people like to warm up some bodyparts with exercises other than what they are doing for their work set. For instance, some people like warming up on leg extensions or something like that before hitting squats. I absolutely can not do that. Obviously I am warming up my quads and stimulating them before the quads workout, but for me, it just doesn't go like that.

              I'm with you here too raul.. but i'm getting about 1 warm up set on shoulders and tris before the rp set. I wanna get into the 'groove' of the exercise and this helps me really focus on kicking the logbook on the rp set to come next. Same thing with forearms after bis. If i hit too many too heavy, the logbook kicks my ass on the rp and thats not what we want..

                I bet that if you'd spend a little bit more time working out and focus more on warmups that you'd be much stronger when it comes to your worksets.

                After chest you could try this for shoulders (works very well for me):

                1. warmup set for shoulders ~6 reps of ~70% workset weight.
                rest no less than 2 minutes
                2. warmup set for shoulders ~2 reps with a weight slightly above the workset weight,.... this primes your nervous system so that you will actually be stronger than if you'd skip this set.
                rest 3-5 minutes, if you choosed the weight accordingly and rested enough between the sets you should feel very strong in your workset.
                each day is an opportunity to move you closer to your goals.

                  i agree with RJ as well,, back thickness and quads are the only parts i might warm up

I haven't tried that setup you laid out above and it looks very good , im gonna give it a wirl because I love trying new things out, got this new open mind about bodybuilding lol. But my problem is that once im done with chest... my shoulder and triceps start suffering if I decide to warmup again after being taxed.
                    When you do a heavy RP set on Chest , your synergist muscles (Shoulder/triceps) get very taxed too so that is what have kept me from adding weight and warming up after a chest session.
                    So true.. my shoulders(front) are pumped after the chest stretch already.. i don't wanna risk my rp set and let that bloody logbook kick my ass..

                      Egill, is this really recommended?? For shoulders only..?

                        I know what you mean, my shoulder/triceps get very taxed too from chest but that's why I am not hurrying into my warmup sets and don't start the workset until I feel like I'we rested enough. I'm not saying that I couldn't get away with only one warmup set for shoulders after chest, I just wouldn't feel as strong as when I warmup like I stated above.

                          This is just what works best for me. People usually don't warmup with a weight that is abobe the working set weight but I think it works very well,... I only do 1-2 explosive reps in that set and I feel that my nervous system is super ready after that,.... it's like I got suddenly a little stronger, sometimes pretty surprising. And I just took shoulders as an example.
