    question about warm up sets

    Hello i have a question regarding warm up sets
    Do i have to do warm up sets for the first exercise of the program only or for every each one?
    For example, lets say im doing an upper body workout and im starting with bench press. Do i do warm up sets and then the working sets for bench and then im good for the rest of exercises to continue with working sets only or i have to do 1-2 warm up sets for every exercise?

    Thanks in advance.

    I only do them for the first exercise. If I'm mixing bodyparts (which I usually do) then I do warmup sets for the first exercise for each body part.

    Do whatever works best for you and how you structure your workouts. You might get pretty fatigued if you're doing several warm up sets before every exercise.

    If you set up your day's workout logically, you'll be pretty warmed up for a lot of your exercises, and won't need warmup sets for some, particularly ISOs and ones where the muscles/movements are similar.

    You may find you only need warmups for certain compound movements, like squats, DLs, or BP - which are likely at the beginning of your workout anyway. Depending on how heavy you lift, you may feel you need more than 1-2 warmup sets for some of them. If you're just starting out and are lifting very light, warmup sets might be pointless.

    I've taken to doing it with every lift. Start with the bar and add 10-30 pounds at a time till I get to my top weight. Especially with the accessories where I don't have a predetermined weight
