More common questions in BodyBuilding -Sets & warmup

Warming up is one of the most important things you should do before going into your sets (other than stretching). This will help prevent injury. Also it will help you lift more weights, so you can totally overload your muscles. Do 1-3 sets of warm up before, with lightweights and build up. Say for example you can bench 200 lbs a certain amount of times. You would start by doing 100 lbs 10 times, then 150 about 8 times, and top it off with one rep of 195. This will get blood into your muscle preparing them for what is coming. Never go to failure on your warm up. This will hinder your chances of overloading your muscles.
