    What do you do to pump up before you go on stage?

    I'm curious to know what exercises sets/reps people do to pump up before going on stage.

    pose a lot backstage so your muscles stay hard. i like using a resistance band to perform exercises like curls, rows, flies, frontal and lateral raises, etc. push ups are also a good idea.

    i dont have a set rep range. i go til the muscle feels a little pumped. make sure these exercises arent too strenuous. ITS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE A WORKOUT!!! just get the blood flowing a little.

    i used bands as well. they normally have free weights but there werent really any to use becuase there are so many ppl there. i would bring ressistance bands and make sure to have a place to do pushups.

    tons of shoulders, moderate arms, moderate, chest, juuuuust enough legs for a pump, and tons of back...back takes a long time to pump up and shoulders are so small they lose the pump really quick so save them for last and hit them hard and fast

    I don't suggest pumping up legs at all. First off, any extra blood flow to the legs is likely to blur striations and definitions. Second, you are constantly flexing your legs onstage during all poses, so its smart to leave them fully rested till you hit the stage.
    "You're going to get criticized no matter what you do, especially if you're trying to achieve something and rise above the flock. Do it anyway. Negative criticism from others is often a sign that you're on your way up in the world."

    ^i meant that u should do light legs for when u walk on stage for the quarter turns and such. like maybe 3-4 sets of front squats or leg extentions if u can get to some.

    yah, I've had trouble pumping before the show. Going to failure makes me feel exhausted by the time I get on stage. I might try the bands from now on

    i usually just work in a circuit training fashion

    -lateral raises
    -pushups
    -rows
    -curls
    -flex
    -bands

    i usually do like 10 reps of light weight on each and keep repeating it. I don't rush... just go a a leasurely pace

    i haven't tried pumping up my legs before going onstage yet... too afraid that they will lose some definition as legs tend to do that when you get them pumped... I may try it though one time to see how it works out

    I got a good pump, but had trouble keeping it
    I did
    side laterals
    incline db presses
    bent rows
    pullovers
    db curls
    calf raises
    ham stretches

    timing is tough as they tend to call you to staging well before you go on and it is easy to lose a pump
    try doing isometric exercises to keep it while waiting to go on
