Warming-up Make sure to warm-up before starting the workout. This can be a general warming-up where you get your heart rate higher by running or cycling. Or this can be a specific warming-up where you warm up by doing exercises who are easy on the joints and muscles. Think about weightless exercises or exercises with little weight. Both of the warming-ups must have the goal to get the heartrate up, to raise your body temperature and increasing blood flow to your muscles.

Some extra information for optimal performance
Make sure that the weight you use is just right for the amount of repetitions. You want to use a weight where you can't do more or less repetitions than noted. One or two reps is acceptable, not more. To get the best result with full-body workouts you'll have to train for 3 not consecutive days. which means that you'll have a day off after every workout. Like: monday, wednesday, friday/saturday or Tuesday, thursday, saturday/sunday. Also make sure to rotate the muscle groups. This way you wont put all of your fresh energy every time in the same muscles and the little energy you've got left at the end of the workout in the other muscles.
