Turkish Get Up Thursday

Thursday’s skill is Turkish Get Ups! 

Why are TGU’s a good exercise? According to myohmytv.com, The Turkish Get Up (TGU) is an excellent full body exercise that incorporates many challenges into one sequence. This exercise could be described as the definition of “functional exercise”. Not only can it be considered a strength exercise, considering you have to hold a load above your head from a lying position to standing, but it also develops stability, flexibility, balance and co-ordination.

So with that in mind, how heavy do you plan on going?
