Turkish Get-Ups – Let’s Experiment

Saturday I squeezed in a quick TGU workout.  After 5 circuits of wall squats, halos and pumps for 10 minutes, I decided to try the high-hip variation of the Turkish Get-Up (TGU).

I studied the photos from the begin2dig.com site and used my old Russian Red 24 kg kettlebell.  My first couple of reps were slow and a bit awkward as I felt my way through the new movement.  However the next several reps flowed pretty well, and I found the movement challenging in a good way.  The only hiccup was remembering the high-hip position on the way down.

One thing’s for sure.  I felt these TGUs in my shoulders a lot more than the other version, most likely because I was going slower then with the other version.  5 reps right and left for 10 total in 5 minutes.

By the way, the new Return Of The Kettlebell book is being offered at the Dragondoor site and by the looks of the table of contents, it looks to be very comprehensive and a great addition to the DVD.  I just ordered mine.  get yours here – DragonDoor.com
