    Rippetoe/Starting Strength Online Warm-Up Calculator

    http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?k...ER4XCPIw&hl=en

    Instructions:
    1) Follow the link.
    2) Select the "File" button in the left hand corner.
    3) From the drop-down menu select "Copy spreadsheet."
    4) Click "OK" on the Dialog Box.


    This tool isn't just for Starting Strength trainees, but for anyone who wants an incremental warm-up for the Squat, Bench, Press, Deadlift, Powerclean and Row.

    Sets 1-4 are to warm up, set 5 is the workset. In 'Starting Strength,' MR provides an example template of the warm-ups for each exercise and my calculator attempts to remain faithful to it. With all exercises (with the possible exception of the Deadlift) the first two sets are warmed-up with an empty barbell for 2 sets of 5, and the following 3 sets are incremental percentages of the workset (ie. 40%-60%-80%). You can rest as much or as little in between warm-up sets as you desire but I usually find the time it takes to swap out the weights is adequate.

    The only exercise I took any liberties of my own with is the Deadlift. I lowered the warm-up sets/volume because 1) Those muscles were already warmed from the Squats 2) It became a lot of volume once you hit the heavier weights.

    The warm-up is important not only to prepare the muscles for the impending maximal load, it's also to get some extra technique practice in. This becomes especially important with Squats, Deadlifts and Power Cleans, where technique deteriorates as weight increases.

    Enjoy!

    I've attached a downloadable Excel version of the spreadsheet, but it requires Excel (obviously).

    The link works, but i can't seem to edit the spreadsheet. I'm assuming this was made so people can put in their work set weight and the warmups will be automatically calculated? Cool idea, but again the spreadsheet is read only.

    I don't have a Google account and don't feel like creating one, so I can't get it.

    damn... it might not be possible to make it a read/write doc.... I can invite collaborators but I don't think just anyone can collaborate. I'll keep trying though. Sorry for the false hope!

    Works great, you can do "File -> Copy Spreadsheet" and then you have your own copy which is editable.

    You should move power clean into the 2nd row besides squat, so that entire thing prints on single page, and add instructions in bold on top to do "File->Copy Spreadsheet" in order for people to use it.

    Nice it works great but...

    Is that how the workout goes?

    1st weight-----2 Sets------5 reps
    2nd weight---- 1 Sets------5 reps
    3rd weight-----1 set -------3 reps
    4th weight-----1 set--------2 reps
    5th weight-----3 sets-------5 reps.

    If so i'v been doing the program wrong (not trying to hijack just making sure)

    Great! Glad to hear it's working! I will add the instructions as you've suggested. I'll leave any other editing to the individual.

    Yup, sets 1-4 are to warm up, set 5 is the workset. In 'Starting Strength,' MR provides an example template of the warm-ups for each exercise and my calculator attempts to remain faithful to it. With all exercises (with the possible exception of the Deadlift) the first two sets are warmed-up with the bar for 2 sets of 5, and the following 3 sets are incremental percentages of the workset (ie. 40%-60%-80%). You can rest as much or as little in between warm-up sets as you desire but I usually find the time it takes to swap out the weights is adequate.

    The only exercise I took any liberties of my own with is the Deadlift. I lowered the warm-up sets/volume because 1) Those muscles were already warmed from the Squats 2) It became a lot of volume once you hit the heavier weights.

    The warm-up is important not only to prepare the muscles for the impending maximal load, it's also to get some extra technique practice in. This becomes especially important with Squats, Deadlifts and Power Cleans, where technique deteriorates as weight increases.

    I have always warmed up following this prescription and it's been very satisfactory for me.

    Rippetoe also states taht "most people will need to select three to five warmup sets, depending on the work set weight...". SS 2nd edition page 292

    You don't necessarily have to use X number of warmup sets.

    true... i always do a 6-4-2 warm-up increasing in weights... this has beenw orking great for me. people should do what feels good for them and what has worked for them in the past.

    There are other versions, but we're talking about the same version and you basically had it right.

    Just to review:

    3-5 warmup sets, then 3 worksets of 5 repetitions for the Squat, Bench, and Miltary Press. 5 worksets of 3 for the Power Clean. 1 Workset of 5 for the Deadlift.

    Class dismissed.

    Actually, he had a couple things switched around, but basically, yeah, that's the workout.

    Am I correct in thinking that once you do warm up sets for the squat and then carry out the work sets for the squat... then you don't need to do warm up sets for any other exercise? You just go straight into the other work sets for bench presses etc? Or do you warm up for each individual exercise?

    That's how the warm-up calculator is set up, and that's what I do personally... and I think it's a good idea to.
    Remember; it's not just to warm-up, it:

    1) Gives you additional technique practice (that won't break down under the weight)
    2) Tells your CNS to expect heavier weights
    3) AND warms you up

    But it's up to you.

    No, you warm up for every excercise.

    In fact, you begin each excercise (not deads) with an empty bar. Every time.
    "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." —Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785

    Yeah ... I mean look at the exercises they are all different and you need to get everything working together in the proper fashion for each exercise. If say incline bench and flat bench where in the same workout you wouldn't have to warmup for both but thats not the way the program is layed out.

    Bumping this old-ass thread as it seems like it'd still be super useful.
    Do you guys think the calculator's an accurate idea of what your warm-up sets should entail? If you do I'll be using it from now on. I'd ask Bango himself but I don't know how active he is these days.
