14 Mar 45 Ways to Describe The Turkish Get Up

Get UpI recently asked this question on the fan page.

I asked fans to describe, in one word, the Turkish get up.

There’s definitely something special and unique about this ancient exercise.

The concept of the exercise is simple.

You start on the ground and then you “get up” moving through a dynamic range of motion, mobility, and stability.

Of course, there’s a lot of details in between the start and the finish position.

And, once we learn the movement, then we can “load” the movement with a kettlebell (or barbell), which takes things to a whole new level of performance and strength.

Adding a weight is usually the epiphany or “a-ha” moment with the exercise.

Yeah, that’s usually when something “magical” happens.

Here’s a full list of words or simple statements that people (maybe you) came up with to describe this magnificent exercise.

The exercise is no joke and it’s every bit as brilliant as described.

What’s great is that these aren’t my words, but the words of people who have experienced the movement.

The Turkish get up is all this and more.

So, did you get up today?
