#WednesdayWorkout – Turkish Get Up

One of the most effective, challenging, wonderful exercises….

“The Turkish get up is a super-simple movement: You lie on your back, holding a kettlebell or dumbbell above one shoulder. Then you simply standup, while keeping the weight above you at all times. This not only helps build total-body strength—including your core—it’s also a great way to burn calories. But as simple as it sounds, there are plenty of hard-to-notice details that can help you get the most out of this move.

A good place to start: Do 3 reps—or “getups”—with each arm; rest 60 seconds, and repeat one more time.”
