    You raise the body temp slightly from the temp when you walk in.
    Youíre too hung up on the name, warm up is a perfectly good name for the stretching / movement we perform prior a heavy lift. Call it preparation if it makes you sleep better, but every athlete in any discipline calls it a warm up.

    I just donít know whether itís necessary, in my case (and Iím just talking about a workout) the exercises I do arenít really a high skill in that Iíve been doing it for many years now, I just get in and go, I know a bloke whom I highly respect and he advocates some warming up by means of treadmill work and he does this long enough to work up a bit of sweat.

    perhaps (in my mind) the repís that lead up to the final important repís in a set are in fact a warm-up.

    and youíre right in saying I get ďhung-upĒ on the term, but in reality it does mean a lot of things for different people in different sports.

    but for me a ďwarm-upĒ (as a separate activity) prior to a workout just seems superfluous

    Well you don’t just strut in on a cold winter day and start heaving the barbell.
    So you do do a warmup, or whatever you like to call it.

    And I am finding the need for a good warmup has increased greatly as I have got older, especially with regard to my knees due to partial meniscus removal and serious thigh bone stress fractures.

    upper body not so bad, light sets are enough to get me ready for the training sets.
    I can't wait for Kevin Aitken to join World Powerlifting.

    Well some walk in, but da grunta struts in, cos he got the biggest cock in the gym. Anyway, horses for courses.
    What you forgot to mention, difficult one, is that you most likely grab a lighter weight and do a set or two of low resistance while your body temp increases.
    yes, I know you donít want to hear this word, but your low resistance or light sets are called a warm up.

    Now im Not having a go or what not but this is not how it works for me.

    i start with the leg extension and a full list of exercises as a full-body template (I can list exercises is required) one set on each.

    as I stated the first few repís are in actual fact my warm-up to the last critical ones.

    on Tuesday I actually asked Max to give me a hand on the leg extension.

    my set target was 11 smooth full repís with the whole stack short of two plates, what I asked Max to do was to help me with three negative only repís at the end, it was those last 3 where the magic happened...

    He lifted the arm, as I couldn’t (I was totally fatigued) to the top, my quads where totally contracted I held it for two seconds and slowly lowered the weight, got to the bottom max lifted it again, we did the two more times, until I could not control the weight down, my quads where numb, pins and needles in my arms and numb down the back of my head, got out of the machine and hobbled straight to the leg press

    Warming up depends on the exercise. If its deads, then you definitely want to work your way up the ladder and the same with squats. For biceps, triceps, calfs and abs its not as important to warm up, you can just pretty much jump straight in and lift heavy. For back, chest and shoulders 1 to 3 warm up sets should be enough until you hit your heavy arse sets.
