(Specialty warm-up: 10 kettlebell Figure-8, 2L, 2R kettlebell halo + 5/1000 extension) 5 rounds of:

20 Kettlebell Figure-8 @ as heavy as possible in each round

10 Kettlebell halo - extension @ challenging and uninterrupted in each round (today- 10 extensions from ONE halo)

If kettlebell Figure-8 is not yet in your toolbox, or is too light or clunky to be useful, adjust to challenging 1-arm kettlebell swing; Kettlebell Figure-8 is best viewed and strategized as a lateral or rotational kettlebell swing; If the hinge position does not transfer seamlessly to it, adjust, or... adjust.
