Bench Max Warm Up

Posted by: Pool

This is my first post to the discussion group. I have done some level of weight training pretty much my whole life but at the age of 44, after reading an article about the natural loss of muscle mass starting in the 40's, decided get more serious and to set some goals for myself.

I have just reached a new PR in my bench (I''m sure the number''s not impressive so I''ll keep it to myself for now) but am not sure if I''m approaching my pre-max warm-up properly. Aside from the mental psyche, is there a "best practice" for getting ready for the "all out" PR? I know that enough warm up is important but how much is too little or too much?

Each person is going to be different as to what type of warm-up is best for them. Just make sure you don''t do a million reps at low weights and tire yourself out. Warming-up is as much getting your body acclimated to the heavy weight to come as it is actually getting loose. Secondly, focus on the task at hand. While some people like to yell and scream and hit stuff, that may be distracting and you may be mentally exhausted from that before you even attempt your lift.
