I'm with you, Spart. I do bar empty bar stuff and light weights of things I'm doing that day. But I also do kind of a pre-warmup that really seems to help as I'm older and perhaps less warm in general. I'll post it here as it works for me, but I don't know if it's good for others. As for hip mobility, I do lunge and reach backs, reach back both hands opposite of leg lunging, that and empty bar cleans and snatches, hope that helps your hips, Spart.
Typical upper body warmup:
Diesel Crew shoulder workout, I-R Y,L,W, Scarecrows, etc. Also, hanging from bar w/ 5-8 scapular retractions, wood bar dislocationsx 15, and some OH squats, finally some active hamstring stretches as that is a weakness for me. Then before I lift, I do empty bar stuff related to the lifts I'm doing for the day.
Typical lower body warmup:
Active Hamstring stretch, jumping mtn climbers, leg swings fwd and sideways, hypers or ghetto GHRs, I also do squat jumps or speed deads with very light weights for fast twitch activation.
Not an expert, that's just what I do.
