Default Warm up secondary group?

O.k so I just got done reading the Warming up post by Darkhorse and I have a quick question? If my day is Chest Tri's do I warm up chest do my chest exercises then warm up tri's and do my triceps exercises. Or just blast into triceps after I get done with chest? I know this has probably been run in the ground but just askin. Thanks

No need to warm up muscles more than once. For example if your chest routine consists of flat bench, incline bench and dips, you only need to warm up for the first lift. You body should be well-primed for the subsequent ones. However, sometimes I like to do a quick, light "warmup" set to get used to the movement.

I'm sorry I probably stated the question wrong. Since I'm doing chest/triceps today here is my workout plan:

5min Tread mill warm up
5min Stretch

Flat Bench
set 1 10 reps bar (warm up)
set 2 10 reps 95 (warm up)
set 3 6 reps 135 (acclimation / warm up)
set 4 3 reps 155 (acclimation)
set 5 1 rep 175 (acclimation)
set 6 6-8reps 185 (work)
set 7 6-8reps 185 (work)
set 8 6-8reps 190 (work)
set 9 6-8reps 195 (work)
Incline Bench
set 1 6-8reps 135 (work)
set 2 6-8reps 135(work)
set 3 6-8reps 145(work)
set 4 6-8reps 145(work)
Cable Crossovers
set 1 6-8reps 20lbs (work)
set 2 6-8reps 25lbs (work)
set 3 6-8reps 25lbs (work)
set 4 6-8reps 30lbs (work)
__________________________________________________ __
Now I plan to move to triceps BUT do I warm them up as I did my chest or just jump in since they are used during chest exercises?
__________________________________________________ ___
Cable Triceps Extension
set 1 6-8reps 40lbs (work set)
set 2 6-8reps 45lbs (work set)
set 3 6-8reps 45lbs (work set)
set 4 6-8reps 50lbs (work set)
Skull Crushers
set 1 6-8reps 65lbs (work set)
set 2 6-8reps 70lbs (work set)
set 3 6-8reps 70lbs (work set)
set 4 6-8reps 75lbs (work set)

5 minute stretch

No you don't need to.

Why do you do so much warm up and acclimation? Your really just burning yourself out. And why do both flat and incline on the same day? Doing incline isnt doing anything for you after your chest is exhausted from the flat bench. See for yourself and do incline before flat. Im sure you will be able to do more weight on incline and less on flat.
