Performance Training: Kettlebell Turkish Get-Ups

📅March 27th, 2015, 16:45

For this week’s performance training tip, Renee Metivier Baillie demonstrates how to properly execute Turkish Get-Ups using a kettlebell…one of her favorite total body functional strength exercises for any type of athlete that engages all the muscles of the core!

Always focus on proper form, especially keeping your arm locked out and completely vertical.  Start without weight then gradually build up to heavier weights once you perfect your form.  Keep your hips square and engage your core, especially those glutes, as you go through the sequence.  Aim for adding this exercise in once per week with 5 repetitions per side, then build to two times per week with 10 repetitions per side.  The Kettlebell Turkish Get-Up is great for any type of athlete that wants to increase performance…this engaging full body strength and conditioning drill helps anyone from golfers to cross-fitters to long distance runners!
