  • warm ups question

    example 2 way split chest and delt and tri part. What would be best do yous think.

    I do chest example 3 or 4 warm ups before the set. And have been doing 3 warm ups for delt and my tricep sets to. But I'm feeling even tho its light and not to failure that it maybe over kill. Does anyone find they can go right into there delt or tri set with just 1 warm up or so? cause it seems I'm feeling good from bench example obv warms up those 2 muscle as well

    There has been a really in-depth thread about this with great input from the likes of Homon and others. You should search for it, I am too lazy to do it now

            I am no DC vet or expert so I am not qualified to give you advice, but personally, I don't necessarily do the same warm up week to week or body part to body part. It depends on how I am feeling etc, but typically, I will do about 15-20 min warm up before chest, some light flies, then just the bar, 95lb, 135, 185, 205 etc not just for warming up the muscle, but to get my mind right with what I am about to do, before my working sets, 11-15 for incline bb press. Typically my warm ups for shoulders/tris are much shorter, 5 min with 2 maybe 3 warm up sets. Squat day usually takes me a tad longer to get warmed up

              Warm-ups are a very individual thing. You need to know your OWN BODY and be able to feel when you are ready to tackle your heavy sets, which is a characteristic of an advanced lifter. It hinges upon that mind-muscle link that we refer to as being a vital part of having success with DC, or actually any routine. So you may need 1 set to warm up and another guy may need 5 sets to warm-up, no one can really tell you but you.

                Exactly this. Thank you

                  It also changes with strength and age. The stronger I am, the more warm-ups I need. As well as the older I get, the more warm-ups I need. Some bodyparts need more warm-up sets than others. For instance, my legs / hips / knees / ankles need tons of warm-ups compared to chest. This week I followed DC's comments in post number three of the following thread. My legs felt great.

                    alright thanks guys. I'm not that strong probably why I don't need as much warm ups. But following program to a t and I'm sure ill need more warm ups soon if the gains continue this good for me.
