Elyse Umeda practicing her Turkish Get-Ups. Nice video quality, would be even nicer if it was under a Hawaiian sky.
Today’s workout introduces a skill that many are not familiar with. The Thursday coaching crew(John, Josh & Cheyne) came up with this workout because they are far superior than I in the Turkish Get-Up movement(I totally suck at it) and 1-arm movements are Cheyne’s current specialty. TGUs take practice, getting up is easy if the weight is light, but when the weight gets heavy perfect form is required.
Workout of the Day:
5 Right Arm Deadlifts(m-135lbs/f-95lbs)
3 Right Arm Turkish Getups(m-65lbs/f-45lbs)
7 Right Arm Push-Press(m-65lbs/f-45lbs)
Then Left Arm
This was definitely a fun WOD to do, and I really like the TGU.
