Pre-game warm-ups are accounted for in the recommended pitch counts by ASMI. Warming up is factored into the numbers that they came up with, so you never include them in the pitch count equation. In fact, warm-up pitches between innings are also taken into account in the recommendations. The ASMI recommendations only refer to in game pitches to batters.
