Shrimping, also called elbow escape and hip escape, is a hip movement drill on the ground. This move uses "shrimping" to escape the mount:
In drilling it, you just do it by yourself down the mat, alternating sides. You end up looking like a shrimp since you hunch over while repeated bending and stretching your legs.

A warm up should not be very intense. Only moderate. You then work it into gradually higher intensities.

Mostly shadowboxing, rope-skipping, and some joint rotations, no real stretching as I save that for the end. Sometimes I'll do a few jumping squats or some pushups to get the blood moving in there, no more than about 10 minutes.

For BJJ we do some jogging, a few minutes, from 5 to 10. Then we do drills, like elbow escapes, alligator crawls, and variations. Then we often, but not always, do some ab work and neck work, then stretching.

Kind of depends on your style don't it?
For me I focus on lossening up my waist and for the stretching routine I do outside of my MA workout I focus on developing a flexible spine and soft hams.
For MT I needed more looseness in my hips.
For TKD I definately needed a flexible "groin" ie. can do or nearly do a center splits.
I am also thouroughly mystified as to what a "normal" ROM is. I know what it IS I just don't understand how you define "normal". Most of the stretching I value most doesn't increase ROM in ways that most people can see it anyways.

You know I realized something upon the revival of this thread. Those little icons that appear with new threads make it really, really easy to see which threads have been Frankenstein'd.
But in contribution to my old thread -
My warm ups now usually consist of 15 minutes aerobic (jumping jacks etc), 15 minutes stretching, and usually 6-8 rounds of two minutes each of skipping rope w/ intervals thrown in, the frequency depending on the current sadism level of the teaching coach.
Everything feels pretty smooth after that.
