    Can't say for sure as I haven't done one. @NomZ and @jimbuick have, though. I'd say just warm up like you normally would and if you have any questions, ask your fellow competitors and when in doubt, follow the crowd. Good luck!

    At the small meet I did, I warmed up just doing a general, non-specific warmup and then I believe I did some deadlifts for reps and light OHP.

    I did not warm up any specific events and neither did anyone I see. My experience is pretty limited though.

    Ok. I wasnt sure if they have some weights you can warm up with or not. I know its probably different everywhere. Thanks

    If its a reasonably well run meet they should give you a little time with the implement to warm up, as well as have an area with weights or space to do a general warmup. Its a good idea o invest in some bands of low, medium, and high tension that you can use in the event the warmup area is too busy or there is no warmup area.
