Getting up.

by carney on June 4, 2014


Jenny and Steph doing Turkish get-ups as part of their WOD.

Lie on the ground. Now stand up. Lie back down. Stand up. All the while holding a weight in your hand with your arm extended towards the ceiling. The Turkish get-up, for reps or max load, is physically and mentally challenging. It is a lot of work. Part of our lizard brain does not want to lie on the ground and then stand back up. “That’s too hard!” it tries to convince us. But not as hard as life would be if you lost the ability to do it. Just ask anyone who is unable to get up once grounded.
