    Starting LHT today! Warmups???

    Primal Fuel
    I've started PBF this week and today is my LHT day. Do I need to warm up before attempting the first LHT assessment?

    Thanks!

    I like to do a thorough full body warmup. like 5-10 minute jog, elliptical, etc. then some dynamic stretching. jumping around, jumproping, et. c then for a particular exercise like the squat, I like to do 3 warmup sets, getting progressively heavier with each one. then I will do my working sets. don't forget a good cooldown and stretch at the end of the workout

    Pretty similar. I usually open up with 500-1000 meters on the rowing machine, then do some combo of bodyweight exercises, rubber band shoulder work, dynamic stretching/jumping, Swiss ball stuff. Squat/deadlift days I do some light kettlebell swings to activate the posterior chain a bit. Then before each major lift I work my way up to my heavy sets.

    My 'general' warmup usually lasts 5-10 minutes before I hit the weights. Cooldown is most of the same stuff; maybe some ab work/planks/handstands/whatever.

    oh yeah. definitely some shoulder work, lunges for the posterior chain, and pushups in that warmup. I need to be thorough when I warm up. a wise man once said "I have a lot of hard miles on my body from before I realized I'm not 100% invulnerable..."
