Pre Game Warm Up

For those guys who are playing what's your go to pre game warm up? I'm starting again next week and want to be able to do a decent warm up without looking like an NBA wannabe douche bag. I used to do a full comprehensive warm up back when playing a higher level but now it's a social game more than anything. Even so I'm getting older and want to make sure I'm ready to go and less likely to injure myself.  I'm usually at the courts about 10-15 prior to the game and have 3-5 mins on court prior to tip off. Cheers.

To me, my best warm up was playing some aggressive defense. Sure, go through some dynamic warmup, if you do static stretches don't do them for longer than 20 seconds each, at best. In fact, I would static stretch only my hip flexor and maybe quads.

Then I would pick up a team mate and play some one on one for 2-3 minutes, playing aggressive defense on each other. That's been a great way to warm-up well for me.

I arrive 30-45 minutes early and loosen myself on the side.  Jogging, dynamic stretch, and shoot on the side baskets.  Zero fuck is given to what other people think.  Honestly do what you need to do that is best for your body.  Who cares what others think...  Only insecure people would laugh at other people for warming up.

Yeah good points.

I've been extending out my warm up to include some dynamic stretching, sprint starts and generally getting the body warm. Has been working kind of well so far. I just wish there were spare courts to warm up on.

Doing the butter flys, the lunges, and stretching calves is imperative........ also stretching ankles is important ..... all this after u warm up....

stretching the ankles goes a long ways, easiest to sprain in bball

its pretty much groin, calves, and ankles is the key......

yeah only bad players laugh at others for warming up...... the good/elite players never laugh at others for warming up
