The Movement Lab: The Turkish Get-Up

The Movement Lab breaks down the Turkish Get-up!

This exercise helps to improve core strength & stability, T-Spine & hip mobility, body awareness and glute strength. Try to follow along with Jeff Hunter while he goes step by step through the movement.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when doing a TGU:

1. Focus on form rather than weight! The movement requires a lot of body control so it’s important to learn the moves correctly before attempting to increase load.

2. Stabilize your body after each step! TGU’s are technically & physically challenging, work on form and balance between steps to prevent injury.

3. Control your speed! It is not a race to the finish with this movement, remain focused on form for the entire duration of the TGU.
