Turkish Get-Ups

My mega awesome trainer Nicole had me try a new kettle bell move: Turkish Get Ups. These bad boys take a lot of balance, concentration and serious breathing as they challenge every muscle from head to toe!  Add in a couple sets of 8 on each side to your workout (Warning: you might be sore the next day like me!).

What you need: kettle bell

TIP: Keep your extended arm straight, holding the kettle bell above your head the entire time. Keep your eyes on the kettle bell the entire time as well.

Start with full body laying down on back, right arm with KB extended perpendicular to the ground, right knee bent and left leg fully extended and resting on ground.

Push up from elbow to full extended arm.

Finish the rep by following all of the steps in reverse order until you are fully laying back on the ground. Repeat for a total of 8 times and then switch arms and do 8 more!
