what i'll do maybe before lifting is do some pushups some jumping jacks to get my blood running, and i have a light weight i use to get my muscles ready.

as for my martial arts training i stretch alot, once i'm done i run for awhile to get some blood running, maybe do some light sparring

Usually between a half mile and mile run as a warmup, dynamic stretches, and some shadowboxing to get loose.

For weights I'll do the run and the dynamic stretches before I begin, then before each exercise I'll do a few light sets to get the muscles warm and work all the kinks out.

ok i go on a short run down behind the local homeless shelter. give a bum 5$ to kick my ass and I have to survive with lateral movement, bobbing/weaving and I can only use to left jab until i circle him twice. i can use either hand for single punches but no combos, hooks, uppercuts. 4 circle i can throw the 1-2 but i cannot end the fight. 6 circles i can use anything I want. the warm-up ends when one of us is unconscious.

that tends to get me goin

I just do a few "light" rounds of shadowboxing. Just to get my heart rate going.

Edit: The guy above me has some pretty unconventional tactics.
