I turned on VH1 this morning just to get a little warm-up before I came over here, and I think it’s just terrific. There’s so much great stuff: diverse and wonderful music, good performances, great looking girls, great videos, the whole thing.
Debbie Harry
You see and work with many of the same people over and over again; they are all specialists in what they do. I could never do their jobs, and they say they wouldn’t know how to start to do a warm-up.
Randy West
I want to be thinking as quickly as I need to as soon as I hit the stage. I want to have a vocal warm-up.
Laurie Metcalf
In Dortmund, the stadium is nearly full for the warm-up. They’ve always been there in their numbers, always backed the team.
Paul Lambert
I probably have the longest pre-game warm-up in the NFL – it’s actually gotten longer over the years.
Greg Olsen
I always remember sitting with my son, Anthony, at Arsenal one night and watching Barcelona during the warm-up. Messi launched this ball miles into the air and then killed it dead with his foot when it came back down. Anthony and I just looked at each other. Normal human beings aren’t capable of doing that.
Tony Pulis
Over the years, I think, people – actors, writers, whatever – lose their frame of reference. Their frame of reference is based on somebody else who did this or did that. Performances. So it just becomes a reflection of what already works. Like a warm-up. And that’s an invitation to be inauthentic.
Michael Keaton
I’ve played in Test matches before after injury without first playing a county game or warm-up of some sort.
James Anderson
I am still in touch with my Secret Service agents, most of whom are retired now. They really get to be your friends. They watched me grow up, and most of them had little kids, so I was kind of giving them a warm-up of what was coming.
Susan Ford
The problem – not problem, but main thing – for me has been adjusting my kids… Four-year-old twins! I’m waking up in the morning for rehearsal, taking them to school, and then having to go to rehearsal – trying to do a 15-minute warm-up, even on the subway.
David Burtka
I did a few DJ gigs at empty clubs, sort of as a warm-up set before Flume was a thing. I did one when I got big enough, and I had five friends come down, and they were the only ones dancing. That was one of my earliest ones. I was super nervous.
I went for a warm-up and got called back and the fans started singing my name when I was sat on the bench. I thought: ‘Oh my god. There are 25,000 people in the ground and there are around 1,000 Swindon fans singing a 20-year-old’s name that has just been working on a building site.’
Charlie Austin
I was lucky enough to play at Old Trafford, and we always talked about the atmosphere on a Tuesday night, the special atmosphere you create, and the crowd is rocking when you go out for a warm-up.
Paul Scholes
Now I know a lot about my body, like how important it is to eat well, as it makes you stronger in the end and helps prevent injuries. Or when you train, do you just start to shoot, or do you have a good warm-up first?
Robin Van Persie
Ronaldo was a phenomenon, but Zizou had something apart. Playing alongside him was a crazy thing! Supporters arrived earlier at the Bernabeu just to see him warm-up!
Roberto Carlos
When I’ve been on shows as a guest, I’m backstage, so I don’t usually hear what the warm-up is saying, so I went and watched a couple of people do it and thought, ‘Actually, I reckon this is do-able.’ The audience is usually excited to be there; it’s just getting a good chat with people.
Ellie Taylor
I can’t go on the court crying because then it’s a big advantage for my opponent, so I have to wipe my tears, have a good warm-up, feel the ball and then start grooving in the game.
Sofia Kenin
Not many know that digging the akhada pit with spade is the best warm-up exercise.
Sangram Singh
People think they need to hire someone to do their PR, but 99 percent of PR in the early stages is stuff you can do yourself. It’s just like business development – there’s the warm-up intro, followup to build relationships, then add something of value.
Michael Seibel
When you’re facing a different guy every at-bat, he’s coming at you with his best stuff. There’s no warm-up; there’s no ‘see a pitch.’ You’ve got to be locked in from the very first pitch… The biggest thing is do your homework before the game starts.
Aaron Judge
As I slowly managed to take what I had learned into a transition from contestant to announcer and warm-up, I first had to prove myself on pilots. And as you know, many pilots are taped for each show that is lucky enough to breakthrough to being a series.
Randy West
I haven’t fought for a while and didn’t want a warm-up fight. I wanted to jump right back in the pit and I got what I asked for. I got Anthony Pettis.
Michael Chiesa
Flexibility is crucial to my fitness. Incorporating a good warm-up and cool-down into every session decreases my chances of injury. I use both dynamic and static stretching in my training. I’ve starting doing a few yoga sessions which incorporates muscle strength and flexibility.
Samantha Stosur
I remember going down the tunnel into the Olympic Stadium and getting a glimpse of all the people and hearing all the noise, all the people shouting for us. I’d seen Usain Bolt on the warm-up track, and then, as I walked into the stadium, I sort of realised how big it was!
Katarina Johnson-Thompson
I analyse performances on the pitch rather than any warm-up.
Steve Bruce
On the actual competition days, you get about three or four hours of physical exertion – between an hour-long warm-up, recovery in-between runs, the training runs, and then the runs themselves.
Hannah Kearney
I shriek when I am climbing at my absolute limit, but never shriek in the warm-up or when trying the moves. No matter how terrible it might sound, it helps me.
Adam Ondra
People think I can just walk out and shoot 75 without taking a warm-up shot. But believe me, it’s not that easy.
Jim Nantz
I have a half an hour warm-up I do that my voice teacher gave me. I exercise at least for an hour during the day. I don’t have any superstitious rituals or anything like that.
Josh Young
For me, a circuit might involve a warm-up, then one minute on the treadmill or the indoor bike followed by a series of 20-second efforts with burpees, tuck jumps, press-ups and standing rows. I might repeat that 3-4 times.
Jos Buttler
I remember my first meeting with Alastair Cook clearly. The entire Lancashire side, some of them pretty mild-mannered, really laid into him. He’d just scored a double-hundred for Essex against Australia in a warm-up match before the 2005 Ashes. For some reason, we all assumed he must be really arrogant.
James Anderson
It’s the warm-up in the changing room when I switch on. I don’t even think about the fight until then. Some fighters are bouncing about the walls, but I switch off. Then it’s like someone flicks a switch in me.
David Haye
I joke that the Olympics is the warm-up to the Paralympics.
Lee Pearson
If you pay attention, stand-up can be great improv training ground. But one of the things that helped me the most was doing warm-up for the ‘Mr. Show’ tapings way back when.
Paul F. Tompkins
I’d like to be on ‘Graham Norton.’ Just because I used to do the audience warm-up for the ‘Graham Norton’ show, and I just think that would be a beautifully lovely, typical end to a narrative. I like a neat ending.
Ellie Taylor
Your Friday and Saturday nights are sacred. When a new guy asks for a prime-time date early on, suggest drinks and make him the warm-up.
Matthew Hussey
One part of my job I’ll never learn to love is the pre-match warm-up. I hate it with every fibre of my being. It actually disgusts me.
Andrea Pirlo
I couldn’t imagine something asking as much of me as ‘House Of Cards.’ It’s a great warm-up for coming back to the screen.
Kevin Spacey
I’ve played a lot of games – I started very early, and the first 50 games were just warm-up games.
Christian Eriksen
I was a warm-up DJ for many years so I know how to build a crowd, what record goes with the next, it’s all about understanding the dance floor and how the energy and flow should go coordinating to what the crowd want or might need.
We do the weigh-in, then go for a walk, then have breakfast, then I listen to worship songs on my iPod because I’m a Christian. I always read the same Bible verses, too. We do the same warm-up a lot of the time as well. But, I have no superstitions before a fight.
Katie Taylor
I was jogging in the grass while on a warm-up and there was a sprinkler hole. I rolled my ankle, and it was really bad.
Justin Gatlin
I normally go through every single line as part of my warm-up before a show. When I’m working on a film or TV programme, there often isn’t a rehearsal, so I tend to learn my lines much later. They are often shorter, too, so they’re essentially just there.
Ray Fearon
I start with a pretty yoga-based warm-up. I do jumping jacks and burpees, and I do a lot of dynamic stretching.
Ethan Slater
