First things first. You are by far, my favorite lifter. I am amazed at your strength and even more so by your technique. I continue to wait for new vids from you, as I have learned a lot for my own training by watching you. Keep it up, I hope to see you lift in "real life" one day...
Ok, so my question: I am a mid-40s non-competitive lifter who lifts just because I love it. Even though I have not competed yet, but I do have a goal to do so soon. My question is when you are mapping out your warmup sets, do you wing it or do you have a plan or rule for the warm up? I struggle with this because I am unsure if I am doing too much, too little or making the right jumps. How would you recommend a 500lb deadlifter warm up?
I may do something like this:
Any tips on this or are there any general rules you use in determining warm up progression?
Thanks a ton!
p.s. if it inappropriate for me to ask this in your thread, sorry! Let me know...
