Are you doing Turkish get ups?
If not, you should be!
They are GREAT for:
– building a strong core
– shoulder mobility + stability
– hip mobility + stability
But a lot of people have problems getting the form.
What I recommend to help, is to break down the movement into parts.
Here’s what it looks like:
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.

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!
