"He was injured due to not ___ up properly before the match."

to warmed
being warming
having warmed
warmed

I can't decide whether the second or the third option is correct in this sentence. What would you pick?

    With multiple choice test questions we always ask you to tell us first which option you think is correct.
    I already mentioned that I'm torn between the second and the third options. But if I had to choose one, then... "having warmed"? I'm not sure, it sounds a little weird for me in this context.

    "Having warmed up" is the "correct" answer in grammatical sense. I am not certain that the physiology is correct however.
