For the month of December, we will do a 300 Turkish Get up Challenge! The TGU is a great move that really does add a lot of benefit to our overall strength and movement. If you are diligent everyday of the month you will be doing approximately 10/TGU’s per day total(5 on each side). As for the weight requirement, we are not stating one….but I will say this, as long as you can move through the Get Up without the weight controlling your movements, then use a more challenging weight. If you’re losing control and don’t have any stability whatsoever, then back the weight down. The purpose of this isn’t to use a light weight so you can rush through the Get Ups as fast as you can. Be challenged, take your time and really focus on form and technique.
