Perfectly matched

by carney on March 4, 2014

One of our standard weightlifting benchmarks is a 45 kg (99 lb) barbell Turkish get-up for guys and 31.5 (70 lb) kg barbell Turkish get-up for the gals. This feat can take anywhere from 1 month, to 1 year, or  more to achieve. It all depends on your range of motion, coordination, balance, strength, and will. At those loads, there’s no half-assing this movement, it’s all or nothing!

Kate and Robby (above), one of our many wife and husband teams, joined us July 2012, and recently hit their 31.5 kg and 45 kg Turkish get-ups, on the same day!
