Mastering The Turkish Get-Up

If you only chose to do one exercise for the rest of your life, you’d be well served to make it the Turkish get-up (TGU). This full-body movement has a little bit of everything from balance and coordination, to strength, core stability, and a touch of cardio. Master this exercise and you’ll have a functional movement to do for decades. Get it wrong, and you’ll have a hard time even getting off the ground. Hayden Carpenter, Health & Fitness writer here at Outside, walks you through perfect form, and gives you some tips to master this awesome movement. For more on this topic, check out the article: “Why (and How) You Should Master the Turkish Get-Up”.
