The TGU… is it worth it? Yes!

I like this article and I certainly like the exercise! The Turkish Get Up is a simple but extremely effective all-body exercise. Its usually done with a kettlebell, but if you don’t have a kettlebell then any weight will do, just make sure it has a safe way to grip it as the last thing you want to do is drop the weight on your head as your get tired!!

If you are not sure of the format of the exercise from the article then there are a load of video demonstrations on YouTube.

If you have never done the exercise before, then take it steady and be aware of how you feel as it gets very tiring very quickly!

Have fun with the TGU!!
