    I"ll spend about ten minutes prior to bodyweight work just foamrolling. It's probably helped my old ass stay stronger and flexible.

    I think I have said this same statement many times this year, except I'm 43. Same thing, low back stiffness, hips, shoulders, knees.... just takes longer to get going for me.

    Wished I stretched more after workouts... It always makes warming up easier the next day.

    I get told I should stretch all the time. I have access to tons of foam rollers, bands, etc. I really just don't feel like it makes a huge difference. I'm pretty sure the people I know who tell me to stretch a ton are barely mobile themselves. The only day I absolutely warm up is bench day, in which I do tons of face pulls and rotator cuff movements. But I only bench 290 so what do I know. Squat and deadlift day I just make sure my hips are plenty flexible by stretching them apart a ton.

    But as to getting your blood flowing....eh.

    "Does a lion warm up when he's hungry? 'Uh oh, here comes an antelope. Better warm up.' No! He just goes out there and eats the sucker." Jack Lalanne

    But personally, I can't really see how training your body to have huge mass would be in line with having mobility to begin with. This one always escapes me.

    foam rolling is more a luxury car to me because it feels amazing when it's done, plus the benefit I get from it just outweighs anything I have done in the past.

    10-15 mins before Push day and leg day. Pull-ups are my warm-up for back day.

    I prefer to do cardio(running) and only then stretch. It takes for about 10-15 min.
