everyone has their own routine but i find this works for me.
Yeah the issue for me wasn't so much the time (4 was plenty). I just skated around for 90 seconds to loosen my legs and find my edges. After that i found myself watching to see what everyone else was doing. By the time I made a decision and took one shot, it was time to go. Now I have an idea of how I want to go about my warm up.
