Poll Thursday - Working warmup

Last week we looked into testing and it's value. There seems to be some interest in testing, but the majority have not ever been tested. VO2 max tests or simple fitness benchmarks are pretty easy to do if you want to evaluate your current state, and more importantly, if you're improving.

Last weekend I was watching team warmups. In general, I feel that warmups are key to preparing your body for the high demands of ultimate, and getting your head focused on the game ahead. A good warmup will prepare a team to play at a competent level early in the game.

So, the question this week is does your warmup put your team in a good place at the start of every game? For those of you with great warmups it might be nice to share.
