The goal of the Max-OT warm-up protocol is to gradually introduce heavier weights without approaching the point of muscle fatigue.
Below are the main points to consider when you are doing your warm-up sets. These points are taken from a passage contained in my book "Inside the Mind of a Champion." The complete passage explains each of these points in detail and gives some specific examples.
* Warm-up on the first exercise for a body part only.
*Progressively introduce a heavier weight each warm-up set.
*As you add weight each warm-up set, decrease reps.
*Do not approach the point of fatigue.
*Your last warm-up set (also called weight acclimation) should be close to your muscle-building set weight.
*4-5 warm-up sets should do the job.
