Barbell warmup is a waste of time.

Think about it logically.
What if I just row at medium intensity for like 10~15min instead of warming up every single lift?
If you guys pay attention, warm up takes like half of the time you spend at the gym.
Wouldn't a full body cardio workout warm my body enough to survive an entire lifting session, for a much more time efficient setup?
You literally have no arguments against this hard fact.

    I used to do exactly this, 2 minutes walking treadmill then blast a mile before rowing for 10 minutes and off to whatever day it was... Thing is you still can just jump into your working weight or else you will probably injure yourself... Especially going from a row machine into deadlifts as the positions are similar but different enough to screw up your form

    Except the purpose of a warm up is to prep your body for doing a specific motion at intensity. You should be thinkinging about the motioms as yoi execute them adjusting based on how your body feels thar day.

    15x reps with the bar is the only warmup you need.

    You should be ramping up weight per set if you lift any amount of real weight.

    My warm up is basically 2-3 minutes of weighted jump rope and like 30-50 70lbs kettlebell swings.

    what? is this the new toilet paper meme? I just warmup my main compound lifts which is pretty quick as I don't need 3min of rest for warmup sets. Honestly, I wouldn't want to jump up to working weight on anything from just rowing except maybe rows.

    both are fine to warmup, But warming up with a bar lets your practise the technique before you do it.

    Lets say you squat 200kg
    Now lets say you place a normal pyramid warm up (bar x 10, 60 x 8, 100 x 5, 140 x 3, 180 x 1) you instead choose to do 15 minutes of rowing
    You think you can just walk up to the bar and squat 200kg after that?
