what do you do and why?
depends on the particular exercise, if im going for a PR such as my deads ill do light sets for warmup working up to a 1-2 rep set. otherwise hard from the start with weight heavy but light enough for a good hypertrophy routine 8-10 reps
work up to a couple work sets. no point in blowing your load on the warmup sets.
No more than 2-3 sets for warmup, then jump into the meat of the routine.
getting a lot stronger a lot faster doing that too
1-2 warmup sets, 2 max........then working sets.
