Not a problem. We're on the same page!Tobylou8 - wasn't trying to start a brawl with my response = As I said in my original post, everybody seems to have their own requirements for warmups. I was only commenting the generality of your comment (I think there's a lot of miscommunication that happens online because of over-generalized comments). And mea culpa on the last part...I wasn't really trying to say that YOU thought they were a bad idea, but after reading your statement about a lot of pro players not needing a warmup, I felt like somebody could interpret the tone of your post to be poo pooing the idea of warmups by 'serious' or 'pro' players. I'm not saying that that was your intention, merely what might happen.
Anyway, once again, I think the original poster got the question answered and plenty of good ideas for warmups!
