As I walk through our box, I see warm-ups that are on both ends of the spectrum; one group will warm-up by shaking the arms out and talking, one group will do the prescribed warm-up, and the last group will do their own thing.

Greg Everett of Catalyst Athletics wrote an interesting piece on warm-ups and has some great points. He points out that some of the warm-ups that you see should actually have a warm-up before you begin. A warm-up should prepare you for training by raising the body temperature and loosening the joints. Take a look at the linked article and video. Good stuff.
