Warmup only takes 15' of your 1:30 workout anyway. I actually hates warmup as well but I guess the mindset is it necessary evil to reach the main course that is your strength work.
Btw, my 2 cents, if you are going to get a doorframe pullup bar, get an elevated one if you are tall. It is very nice to not having to bend your knee a lot just to get to full deadhang.
Also, get dip paralettes instead of one piece dip station, it takes quite a bit of space. Though you should get one that is long enough so your feet doesn't touch the ground.
Edit: I don't own this so cannot speak for the quality but check this one out. A bit expensive but a dip station can be over 60 bucks easily, so for that price you can have both dip station and elevated pullup bar:
No personal experience with either, but this one has more reviews. Might be worth looking at.
The advantage of a power tower would likely be that it gives you a little bit more room for the moves. (not that you necessarily need it)
I already have a multiple grip pull up bar, but I'm wondering if this is a better upgrade so I can do dips and use the straps as rings. Is it a good idea to purchase this as I learn and prepare for the RR? I believe this bar will cover all the equipment I need for the RR too, right?
I don't think they would work. You'd probably need a barbell w/ weight to stabilize the stands, and the dip bars attach sideways on the uprights, so the barbell would get in the way. I just bought a doorway pullup bar w/ dip attachment. Works fine for me.
Pushups. Regular flat on the floor, then some with feet elevated, and some with hands elevated. I'll even use those half-sphere hand-sized balls (rounded side down) under my hands for an extra challenge.
I balance the pushups with a Doorway Chest and Shoulder Stretch to prevent rounded shoulders. If you can get a door frame pull-up bar with dip bar and suspension straps, those are great. Like this one.
For the core, I'm not a big fan of sit-ups. I like leg raises, flutter kicks, planks, and the BJJ sit-through.
