Turkish Get Up Corrections Pt. 1

I'm putting together a series of videos on the Turkish Get Up and the Snatch. These cover common deviations I have observed as a trainer, and methods of correction. This one covers the sit-up portion of the get up. When I see people struggling with the initial portion of the get up, normally it is due to the arm which locks out the bell levering back behind the ideal supportive position. Punching the bells slightly forward and up corrects this and causes the bell to end up in a position where it 'meets' the torso, which is moving forward.


  1. Nice job Jordan. I look forward to the rest of the series.

  2. Great video! One little extra I use to help my clients with heavy sit-up getups is to crush grip the bell while slightly screwing the bell upward by using a small external rotation of the shoulder.

    I also wanted to thank you for your great hand-care email. I have put it to good use as today I did 300 24kg snatches raw (no tape, glove, sock or chalk) without any hand issues at all.

  3. Thanks Matt.
    Great work Franklin. Glad to hear you've been able to apply the info.

  4. Great video Jordan!

    Explanations are very good!
