One thing I do is take the weight I am planning on doing for the day and do a single of it. Then I wait for another minute or so before doing my set. This primes the nervous system for the stimulus. Another benefit is that since my body is already used to the stimulus the weight feels much lighter. This is a great psychological boost and I've found it to be a great way to exceed the number of reps I may have thought I would get with the weight.
