Turkish Get Up Corrections

"Strong people are harder to kill than weak ones, and more useful in general."
-Mark Rippetoe

I love that quote.

The below videos cover common mistakes I see in the TGU, and may prove to be useful.

Part One

Part Two


  1. I should have watched these videos last night before my KB circuit. Good stuff. Thanks!

  2. Another great video!

    I definitely will be borrowing the term "gymnast joint stacking" you used to reinforce the proper hand position of when descending from the standing OH position. I also see this issue a lot.

  3. Thanks Jessica and Franklin. Happy to be of service!

  4. Hi Jordan, just wanted to mention that I tried your tips out (stacking your joints, putting your hand down across from your knee, etc.) last night and what a difference! Thanks again.

  5. That's great Jessica. There are others on the way.
