“I find the Turkish Get Up to be meditative as well as physically challenging. It forces me to slow down my breath, raise the consciousness of my body, and believe in myself. It also helps me notice what parts of my body need more attention for strength-building. I actually like the descent of the TGU best, as I really turn inward while slowwwwly laying back down flat. That last motion, from elbow to shoulder, is something I'm currently working on improving.H. Lapidus

“I have found the TGU to be an amazing exercise for getting my mind and body working together. There are so many working parts going on that the synergism of each muscle and the brain is paramount. Love it!”P. Wood

 

 

“Years ago when a lifter, sought out to be taught by the “old time “ masters of strength, the master would first have the student train with TGU’s. Even back then they knew the benefits acquired by performing a technically sound TGU. It applies stress to the body in all the planes (sagittal, frontal, transverse)
It works not only qualities of strength, but also stability, mobility, joint integrity, and kinetic awareness. There is also an offset load component by holding the load in one hand, which really fires up the nervous system. Real important in Real Life. And think about it, if we can get off the floor with a good size kettlebell in one hand, how much easier it will be to get off the floor when we get older. Especially when you’ve coached some seventy- and eighty-year-olds to get off the floor themselves. That’s freedom.

Get Ups help my grip, my upper back, glutes and obliques. I make sure to do them at least four times a week. I remember, Lauren, that you spoke several years ago about how when you first started with kettlebells you could not do a TGU even though you were physically fit. At age 51, I want to be able to get up from the floor easily, and I can, in large part, because of TGUs. They help me to keep my torso stable when sitting and walking and because my grip is strong, I can carry things pretty easily.” @hamorah67
