The Turkish Get-Up is one of the most complex but functional exercises that an athlete that can perform that incorporates all of the muscles of the body, working together to accomplish the task.
Performing the Turkish Get-Up requires shoulder shoulder stability and control, core strength, and leg drive as the athlete steers the weight through a variety of planes and angles. The Turkish Get-Up allows the athlete to create a linkage between the lower and upper body.
At Champion’s QUEST, our athletes perform the Turkish Get-Up during our Strength clinics to develop their core strength and body control.
