With a Half TGU

There are so many ways to use the Turkish Getup for mobility and strength training. Today, we warmed up with some full Getups and then did a challenging set using Half Getups.

Set 1


Two full Getups each side with a light KB.


  • 1/2 Getup to Standing
  • 10 Racked Squats to Push Press left side (weight is light to moderate)
  • 1/2 Getup to Ground
  • Repeat on right side.

Total 3-4 rounds.

Set 2

Practice & Train

  • Windmill - 5 each side with light KB (working on technique / hip drive)
  • Perfect Pushups (leave one in the tank -- keep good form)

Total 2-3 rounds.

Set 3

Felt Like Play!

Swing Ladder (2-hand) You Go, I Go: 10-9-8-7-6 ... and 1-2-3-4-5 = 110 swings.

Training Tip: End your training session stronger than when you started.
