(Specialty warm-up: 5L, 5R Kettlebell row, 10L, 10R Around-the-body pass)

Kettlebell bent-over row:

3 x 3L, 3R @ as heavy as possible in each

3 x 12L, 12R @ 50-60% of above

Bent-over row stands all the way up (essentially a one-arm, Pistol grip deadlift), braces, and descends into a hard, perfect, square-backed Good Morning position; Weight does not touch the ground until the set is over!

Then, all at scaled-to-full-ability/ scheme-appropriate weights:

3 x 12L, 12R Pistol grip/ canted one-arm kettlebell swing

3 x 12L, 12R Kettlebell Around-the-body pass(L to R transition happens as Figure-8)
