Are several sets of warm ups really necessary?

Are several sets of warm ups really necessary? Isn't just benching the bar for a shitton of reps a sufficient enough as a warm up or should you really do 5 sets with slight weight increase everytime

    who the fuck told you this
    just do however reps you want with the bar, if youre doing warm ups for more than 1 set youre doing it very wrong

    45 > 135 >185 > 225 > 255 > working sets is usually how I warmup. Just because your max is 155 doesn’t mean actually strong people are doing it wrong

    You'll crush your larynx one of these days and all that lifting will be for nothing.

    Fucks no. I've been lifting since I was 13. In that 15 years, not once have I ever warmed up. If you start with anything less than 2 plates youre a fucking closeted homosexual.

    Yes, you should warm up with at least a couple, more depending on the weight.

    You could try doing it wennings warmups style.
    Just do all your accessories before you do the main lift. You shouldn't have to spend much time building up to your working weight.
    I don't personally do these but also I'm not very strong

    Also lately I have been feeling warmed up midway through my working sets lately... Only 180lbs 5x5 and amrap the last set. Am I not warming up enough? I've been trying not to waste a ton of energy before getting to my working sets. Is this normal?

    Depends on the weight. Most people usually start at one plate, then add a plate until they reach their working weight.

    So if you bench 225 for reps, you really only need like 1 warmup set.

    It's a good idea to warm up with some weight on the bar. Underlying tendon tightness/issues could be there that isn't apparent if you just do a bunch of reps with the bar. It's just good to clue yourself in to exactly how your body is feeling.
