warm up exercises

Just like good sportsman i suspect artist need to warm up ... get the body performing what the eye seas and the brain has visualized ... movements must be practiced and practiced again until the skill appears a second nature ... rapid sketches at a life class are like laps to a swimmer... road miles to a cyclist ... sometimes you need to do thats curved line without thinking .... just let your eye control your arm no concious thought required ... the trouble is i tend to get totally obsorbed in the act of sketch I can not tell if my training is working... or if i should be sketching more ... just when does a healthy passion move into an obsession?
