Turkish Get Up w/ Shoe

Hey gang,

Just a quick update today.

Whether or not you’ve heard of the Turkish Get Up, it’s a great exercise that nearly everyone could benefit from.

It’s typically performed with a kettlebell extended overhead, but this may not be the safest option when you’re just learning the movement.

Check out this quick video on performing the TGU with your shoe…yes, your shoe.

It’s a much safer option for the shoulder, arm (and face!) that teaches you to slow down and use absolute control throughout.

Try 3-5 reps per side one or two times daily.  Alternate sides so the shoulders/arms don’t get too fatigued.

The whole body gets worked on this one.
