Strength, Agility & Mental Skills / Turkish Get Up
by Jimmy Myers
Jimmy was a wrestler and 3-time “All American Athlete” at the University of Central Florida before becoming a Partner and Head Trainer at Tampa Bay Athletics in 2012.
Mobility and strength are both achieved in this exercise, The Turkish Get Up, and it is one of the best bang for your buck exercises dating back hundreds of years. Coach Myers takes us through the step by step process to properly performing the skill. Start with no weight and do 2 sets of 6 reps making sure you have good form and control of your body. Progress into using weight and eventually 3 sets of 10 reps with a 1 minute break in between sets.
