@BackInShapeBuddy From your contribution in the link : "Generally you will achieve more motion when the tissue is warmed up". Could you please share your knowledge here with posting, as an answer to my question, some guidelines how to warm [this tissue] up before a stretching routine? Thank you in advance.

Yes, indeed. So my question is how such workout should look like, how to warm up before you start such a strenuous exerciseset and how to cool down afterwards. :)

@BackInShapeBuddy That would be mainly injury prevention and increased selective flexibility. I've just updated my question in order to adress it.

Could you provide any source for that? Since this is contrary to what I've read I'd like to read something from this perspective as well.

comment The theory behind crossfit, “ghetto” workouts etc
Your one before last comment was precisely what I wanted to know. If you added that data to your main answer and maybe elaborate on that a bit more, it would make a perfect answer to my question (deloading is a standard practice, please do not focus on that). Thank you! To be sure, in both phases the exercises are made in circuits with no rests between them, right?

Comparing to what rules I managed to grasp out of the crossfit pages and posted above - you stress another rule, namely constant changing of exercises. The importance of changing the exercise set before muscles get accustomed to it is a well known rule to every serious bodybuilder. However crossfit seems to take it to the extreme through having no fixed set of exercises for more then one workout at all, which seems strange and unnecessary to me.

I still think this is too general. As you are a practicing crossfitter, please post the workout patterns you use. I mean number of repetitions per exercise, number of exercises per circuit and so on.

However your contribution is still interesting. From what I had been advised, a warm-up should consist of : a cardio introduction (running, biking, jumping rope etc ), dynamic stretching ( I didn't know the name for this before, indeed it's odd to call these stretches at all ), proper stretching ( in order to "increase the movability of joints, strenghten the tendons and improve the muscle blood flow" and performing a few introductory light exercises resembling the proper workout. With such a "full" warm up would you sill discourage doing the stretching part?
