warm-up/cool-down ? for home training

so i just built myself a home "training center" with a hangboard and pull-up bar (and room to hang bike stuff!) and i was curious as to what those of you with home boards do to warm up and cool down when training?

i've always trained at the gym before and just did some light climbing and stretching, but obviously without a wall at home the climbing is out of the picture. my hangboard came with a light suggestion of doing dead hangs, but i wanted to get more input. thanks!
p.s. here's the setup

I use a theraband to warm up - whether in the gym, outside, or on my home board. I simply work through a variety of exercises and make sure that my muscles are really warm, then I start doing easy problems - in your case, dead hangs on jugs. The nice thing about it is that I can keep the same routine for any area and it puts me in an easy state of mind.

I have a hangboard in my closet in my dorm room, so i have severely limited space to do any warming up. So usually I'll do some jumping jacks, pushups, and bicep curls with a dumbell in my room. Stretches, crunches, etc. once I get some sweat going and I feel warmed up, I'll start my hangboard routine, which starts out with easy pullups and deadhangs and gets progressively more difficult.
