You know, when players on each side stand in the middle of the court and hit lightly back and forth. I have a friend who can't go directly to warming up from the baseline without doing this baby warm up first. I feel like we waste so much time on this. I hate it and I'm not doing it any more for more than 3 minutes PS1: I'm thinking I may have posted something similar before; maybe around a year ago. Anyway, I can't find it. So, maybe I didn't. PS2: Maybe, I should have posted this on "Rants & Raves", but I just remembered I wanted to ask if there was any benefit to starting out a warm up like this? Why can't we just warm up lightly from the baseline? Is this some old school thing?
