How To Do A Kettlebell 1/2 Turkish Get Up Exercise Demonstration Video and Guide

The Kettlebell ½ Turkish Get Up is a challenging exercise that builds overall core strength, and pretty much every muscle in your body.

To get started:

  1. With the kettlebell on the floor beside your shoulder, lie down on your side in a fetal position, grab the kettlebell with both hands, and in one motion, roll back so your back is flat on the floor, while safely pulling the kettlebell on top of your chest.
  2. Straighten your legs and place them on the floor, so they are at a 45 degree angle with your body.
  3. Bend your knee on the same side as the arm that you will be holding the kettlebell, and place your foot firmly into the floor.
  4. Place your other arm out to the side, at about a 45 degree angle, with your palm pressed into the floor.
  5. Press the kettlebell straight above your shoulder, packing your shoulder back into your shoulder joint for safety.
  6. Keep your wrist and elbow straight, with your palm facing your feet, and keeping your eyes focused on the kettlebell throughout the movement.
  7. Contract your core and glutes, and in one motion, push your planted foot into floor, punch upward with the kettlebell, while you press your opposite elbow into the floor to lift your body up onto your forearm, and then press your hand through the floor to lift up and lockout your elbow.
  8. Under control, reverse the movement, and repeat.
  9. Once you’re done with the reps on one side, switch sides and repeat.
