I think you miss the point everyone is trying to tell you. Warmups and acclimation sets are a walk in the park. It won't tax your body or take to long to finish. Trust me. I'll use what I did as an example:

135 x 12
1 minute break
135 x 10
1 minute break
185 x 8
1 minute break
225 x 5
2 minutes
275 x 3
2 minutes
295 x 1
1 minute
315 x 1
1 minute
First set

It looks like alot for me, but I wasn't even breathing heavy. It almost felt like a wste of time, but of course the next three sets told me otherwise. The pooint of all the warmups is just to get the blood flowing, not, "Oh shit, 4 more THEN my working sets after that!" For you, it shouldn't take you but maybe 10 minutes. It's not like you need alot of warmups for the weight you use (no offense)
