With a partner Row 2000 in 250m Intervals. Focus on Deadlift position of the row.
3 x ( 4+4 Single Leg DB Deadlift + 10 x Cossack Squat + 10/10 Banded Russian Twists)

Please not this is far from a 20 max effort Deadlift - light and structural is the goal - but your hamstrings should be “lit” as the Instagram models say…
