Workout Warm Up SCREW UP! (Big Workout Mistake!)

Stop making mistakes and start making serious gains http://athleanx.com/x/make-gains-not-mistakes We all know it’s a good idea to warm up before you workout …


  1. I can't do calculations of Pounds to KG in my head, maybe Jamie (The editor, I'm sorry if I got the name wrong) can do the conversions in the edit, instead of 10.000 Europeans having to do math while the listen to a video in their second language?

  2. Thanks Jeff. I've been doing it wrong. Signed up for your A-X1 program, just completed week one and you're kicking my 59 year old butt. And I like it. I find myself working neglected muscles on the rest days plowing through your youtube videos. I never get bored with repetition with you. I like the infinite choices within your paid programs for core too.

  3. You always say that you "wanna get your work done quickly" and plan around working out for an hour or so. But on the other hand you use the most specific exercises and 4 warmup sets each time. How does that work, how can you hit each muscle twice a week like that?

  4. THANK YOU for ALL the videos and taking the time out to teach us. I thought I knew it all and guess What? Hell No I don't!!! I'm constantly learning more from YOU and AthleanX. Thanks again!!!

  5. so in other words, for shoulder dumbell press I'd want to go 15lbs@20-25reps, 15lbs@10-20reps, then up to 45lbs@10reps, then 75lbs@4-5reps, and finish with my set goal of 60lbs@10 reps?

  6. the only thing I didn't do iz go over RM… before doing it. I liked starting with a warm up couple of sets before getting deep into the work out. nice info here man! keep blazin! makes a lot of sense

  7. This is a very good video-tip. Excellent.

    Can we omit the "what's up guys?" from the start of every video though? No-one is going to answer that question. It adds nothing, and is mildly annoying because every dam exercise-video seems to have it. Just leave it off.

  8. are you doing more than 1 set at your 10rm? also do you do these warm up sets with every exercise you do?
    Seems like its going against the idea of keeping your workouts to around 45min to 1hr because you would be spending so much time with 1 exercise alone.
    is this mainly for building strength?

  9. Very helpful. I saw this technique on a different channel. That dude didn't explain what he was doing, so I didn't know about reps and %, but I used it with bench presses. I saw the results immediately, it was much easier for me to bench 160 after 200. Plus it feels like a little strength development routine if you do 2-3 sets with higher weight (if you have time off-course)

  10. i believe warm ups should be bodyweight exercises like pull ups and push ups because in warm ups we should target the whole body including core to be working instead of an isolated muscle group so please warm up with those exercises wich includes large muscle groups and train yourself as an athlete. i follows jeff most off the time but for this video sorry for thumps down!

  11. Hell yeah man! It's shit like this, why I signed up. And with your program, I think I'm gonna have the 6 pack by day 60! Thanks ahead of time!

  12. great video. I used your advice, and definitely feel better on my lifts. sometimes I do your total body circuit workouts though, and I'm less Confident in my warm-up for those. I usually jog or if I'm at the gym bike or row machine. any advice or a video for this would be awesome. You rule Jeff, you're the biggest help to keeping me fit after college ball. Thanks!
