Turkish Getups are tough (but awesome)!

Turkish Getups are tough to do well with a smooth and seamless motion. But they are an awesome full body workout just on their own. However, like any exercise, they require practice and patience and regression.

Practice them in stages and perfect each stage. A tip: The placement of your points of contact with the ground will be subtly different for each person, practice theĀ movementsĀ and perfect them without weight to find what works for you.

As with most things in life, there are people who are better or more advanced than you. That’s not a problem, as long as you’re willing to learn (critically) from them.

Here’s Gray Cook teaching the Turkish Getup.
