Warm-up Couplet

Termed coined by Greg Everett to describe the use of a technique-reinforcing exercise with a primary exercise in a complex during the warm-up for that primary exercise. Examples would be muscle snatch + snatch, snatch + snatch balance, push press + jerk, etc. This complex would be repeated with progressively increasing weights as the athlete warmed up the primary lift, and then the technique exercise removed once heavier weights were reached.
