(new video) Kettlebell Exercises for Core – the Turkish Get Up

Turkish get ups are GREAT for:

– building a strong core
– shoulder mobility + stability
– hip mobility + stability

And MUCH more.

But a lot of people have problems getting the form.

What I recommend to help, is to break down the movement into parts.

So (be sure to both read the breakdown below AND watch the video a few times):

Part 1 = Roll to the side, pull the ‘bell to the body, roll to the back, punch towards the ceiling

Part 2 = Opposite arm, leg go out at 45 degrees

Part 3 = Roll to the elbow, then hand. It’s NOT a sit up!

Part 4 = Foot sweep

Part 5 = Get set, get tight, stand up!

Then, all you need to do is reverse the motion to get back down.

(There are a few tips in the video to help with this part of the movement as well – again, be sure to review a few times to get all the important points)

Breaking the Turkish Get Up down into PARTS – as outlined in today’s video – is what helped me to finally “get” the exercise. I hope it does the same for you!
