My Favorite Kettlebell Turkish Get-up Variation


kettlebell turkish get-up variationHope your day is going well. It’s bright and sunny here, and after a long winter, let me assure you that this weather is a welcome thing!

I’ve heard a couple of people talking lately about how even though they’re seeing great results in the gym… they’re bored with just doing the basic exercises.

I have to be honest, I don’t know as though there’s anything boring about getting bigger, stronger, and more jacked. If the basics were getting me there I’d just hammer the hell out of them before I tried to get tricky, myself.

However, I do appreciate coming into the gym and playing around a little. So I was scrolling through my old raw video footage and found a good one: The Chaos-style Turkish Get-up.

This exercise adds an interesting “twist” (pun intended) to one of my favorite kettlebell exercises for developing conditioning, mobility, and shoulder stability. Grab a mini or a light band along with a kettlebell (start on the light side) and give it a try!

Love the variation with the bands. That is a luxury most gyms may not have. But if the do, I recommend using the bands within your workouts.

The great thing about the bands is that they’re easy to carry with you. I recommend picking up a couple to most of my clients for when they travel.
