The warming up exercises should include a contraction and a release of one’s voice-producing muscles, alternately, with an 8-second contraction followed by an 8-second rest.
A commonly made mistake is an over-strained vocal warming up without a rest, since vocal warm-up is essentially about relaxing, not straining the voice-producing muscles before they get warm!

Faithfully keeping your voice intact
