Synyster Gates' warmup routine before a show

Synyster Gates was interviewed by Ultimate Guitar, here's an excerpt:

What is your warmup routine before a show? 
I practice what I play. If I'm having trouble with an entire song, I'll work on the entire song. A song like "This Means War" is a simple little riff but I practice it until I can play it perfectly tight. Once they become part of your repertoire and you develop a certain amount of comfort, then I practice the solos. I'll run through every solo and sometimes twice.
