The following are examples of warm-up sets that should be performed before work sets. Warm-up sets should be used to wake up the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints and to prepare the central nervous system for the weight that will be moved; therefore, warm-up sets must be customized to the individual lifter’s needs for a particular workout.
