Turkish Get-Up

Imagine you’re in your 80’s and you’re able to do this movement. Don’t you think you’ll be a pretty bad (and by bad we mean good) senior citizen if you’re able to pull this off even without any external resistance?!

That’s how you have to look at movement and how your treat your body. If you don’t use it, you lose it. We look at the Turkish Get Up as the ultimate “don’t get old” movement.

The Turkish Get Up takes a little getting used to, so be sure to watch this video as much as you need and practice getting up and down, first without weight, and then ever so slightly add progressive resistance to it.
