How do you warm up before orchestra?

As a good musician, you arrive plenty early to rehearsal, ideally. Once you've unpacked and settled in, what is your warmup routine? Do you have one? The situation is a little different than a practice room, as it's more public and social. It's nice to practice whatever music will be played for the day, but at the same time, maybe you have a warm-up routine that helps keep you from injury. Or maybe you like to play your latest piece -- I've certainly heard colleagues do so! You may do a combination of the options listed below, but please check the one that you would do first and foremost, if you had limited time.

The above picture is from a hilarious video by Michael O'Gieblyn about practicing your concerto before orchestra rehearsal. If that's what you do, though, it's okay to admit it! Please also share your thoughts in the comments below.
