Realistically, I don't think I am likely to ever be comrade enough to

do two-handed cleans and presses with 140 pounds I will probably just
use a barbell. If I want to do swings that heavy I will make myself
one of those t-handle gizmos.
Of course, I reserve the right to change my mind. The more of

Renegade rows are the only double-kettlebell exercise I do, using
bells of different weights, which means I have to switch things around
when I change arms. I'd probably do them more often if I had a
matched pair, but I don't see buying an extra kettlebell just for
that. Good exercise, though.
There's always something. I've never done renegade rows, but I have no
trouble believing that they are an excellent exercise. Planks are good,
rows are good, so a row from a plank position should be great.
I would say that I would do this with my dumbbells, but they the cheap
adjustable standard spinlock type, and renegade rows would quickly turn
into an evil wheel variant as the dumbbells rolled away.
Which reminds me. I have not used my evil wheel in months. I probably
need to find some time to fit that in.
