Turkish Get-Up


No I am not talking about the clobber worn by the Turkish, I am referring to an exercise technique.  Frank from Frankies Training Lab, has produced a brilliant instructional video, breaking down the components of this exercise.

I hardly ever include this in my workouts, but know that it is a super benefical exercise to do.  Check out this video and let me know what you think.  Yesterday I did a few sets of these in the house, using dumbbells as I don't have any kettlebells (yet!) and it felt intense and awesome!!!

Make sure to start including this in your workouts!  And don't forget to check back on Wednesday for a great giveaway.


  1. Wow. I fear it could become a Turkish "Oh My God I Can't" Get-Up.
    But really... looks like a great exercise. I would just have to watch it MANY times to remember the sequence before attempting it!

  2. Looks like an interesting exercise. I don't have a kettleball either, but I suppose it would work with regular weights. As to the green smoothies, kale works wonderfully, although it's a bit stronger in taste than spinach. Also, the better the blender, the better the smoothie. If you have a Vitamix or a blender similar to that, the smoothie will turn out really creamy and smooth.

  3. Thats funny Jill! Definitely one to try and home, just so not to embarrass yourself at the gym. I did it with a 15 lb dumbbell, so that should work.
    Thanks for the smoothie info :)
