Question for you man. Do you have any specific warm up routine you do? I’m always curious how others prep themselves before even touching a barbell.

I just tumble for 5 min straight (cartwheels, shoulder rolls, hand stands, etc.) focus on my hips/quad/hams/thorasic spine and then do a small complex for 2 rounds. Then I’m ready roll feeling loose.


#949

Thank you, I hope you found some eduction out of my mistakes and endless numbers! :slight_smile:

Yes, I do. I do what is called a “protyazhka,” or a modification of it. I always start my lifting with, in order:
-IT band rolling, pvc pipe
-entire back rolling, pvc pipe
-massage stick (rad roller) on thighs, 30 passes on each quadriceps muscle (ends to be about 90 total per thigh)
-I then take two 5 pound dumbbells and lay on a bench with my arms over my head and let the dumbbells stretch out my chest and shoulders, I then rotate my arms every 10° or so to stretch my chest into eventually a iron cross sort of, holding each angle for about 15 seconds. GREAT STRETCH for the chest and shoulders.
-hand against wall chest and wrist stretch
-garland pose (with a 25 pound kettlebell) for 1 minute, sometimes longer
-I take a broomstick and do 10 shoulder dislocates
-overhead squat the broom stick with increasing narrow grip…
-then move into a modified Protyazhka using a barbell.

A Protyazhka consists of a snatch grip long pull without any knee dip. It is combined into a combination of a press behind the neck and an overhead squat. Keep in mind, this will be essentially a barbell complex without rest. It will look like this:

Snatch Grip Long Pull 3-5 reps
+
Wide Grip Overhead Press 3-5 reps
+
Overhead Squat 3-5 reps

Do this for a total of four to five rounds. Sometimes if I am super stiff and sore, I will keep push pressing the weight off my shoulder until I can violently get high bar speed then move into the overhead squat with the barbell.

Long, I know, but I am 32 and it is pretty much what I have to do to get myself primed to lift.

I know it’s weird, I never really completely deload, but I will wave my weights in my major lifts… even though they never seem to sink up… poor programming? I don’t know, it seems to be working okay, and I am feeling pretty good.
