Kettlebell swings are Russian height, and one arm. Make sure to keep your body square at the top of the swing, you can use your non-working arm to ‘tap’ the kettlebell on the the top of the swing to ensure you are staying square. If chest to bar pull ups are something you struggle with think about doing singles on these from the start. This will help you not ‘burn out’ on the pull ups, and save your lungs a bit for the rest of the workout. If you do singles, really minimize the rest between reps.
