Force out a second set without any rest, then you'll definitely be warmed up  :strongbench:

The best warm up for me, seems to be a session at Broomgrove wall in Sheffield - very fingery vertical climbing. Always performed well after that. Alternatively, if starting from cold, at home, I use a set of bathroom scales. Standing on the scales, I vary the load/fingers/grip. Of course, as you increase the load, the number on the scales goes down. I either continue on the scales - especially with single hand pulls - or transfer to bodyweight. As you increase the load, your feet naturally come off the scales anyway. I find this a brilliant way to warm up. Give it a go and report back!  :2thumbsup:
I thought Broomgrove was scheduled to be demolished ? obviously not
