Dunno how many people we have on the boards that are into "alternate" lifts, but I decided to give this a try last night while working out. My previous best was 77.5lbs with a KB, so I was surprised I set a PR using a BB, which was a lot harder as far as balancing and what not.

80lbs BB Turkish Getup at a BW of 152.6lbs-

Chubrock good job, odd lift but I saw it online before. Are you suppose to use your free arm to help you get up? It also looks a little dangerous?

Nice. I've never seen that done before. Can't say I'll ever try it though, as I may kill myself.

Just a quick comment on your gym setup....from now on when I workout I will feel like the Russian from Rocky 4 with you being Rocky himself! I don't know how you can workout in such a place. Dedication I guess? Great job . Oh and strange lift.....sort of looks like something to promote superman like strength as he gets up off the ground with a sky scraper in his hand and Lois in his other! lol

It's the Eye of the Tiger it's the thrill of the fight....



Haha you don't need anything fancy. A cage, bar, bench and 600lbs of weight is all you need.



Thanks for the comments on the video guys. It's pretty fun. Ya'll should try it sometime.

I read your OP as 80kg, I was thinking "holy ****" hahah

still impressive, and that's a pretty neat lift.

That is pretty interesting and different to say the least, but a point to the motion?

Looks damn hard though.

Ant- Haha ya damn right.

nhl- Holy hell, I'd love to see the person who could do that with 80kgs. He'd be a friggin monster.

Irl- A Turkish Getup is one of the toughest full body movements possible. I've only seen a couple of other movements that I find tougher. You've got to remain extremely tight through your core as well as pretty much everything. We used to do them in KBs, and haven't done them in probably 4 months. Using the BB was just something I decided to throw in.

Nice shoulder strength! Good job supporting the weight and managing to balance it.

Drew- Haha thanks man. It was cold as hell and raining so I threw on as much clothing as I could find but still move around in.

David- Thanks. It actually doesn't involve as much shoulder strength as you'd imagine. Completing a Turkish Getup is all about making each movement solid and as efficient as possible. As long as I can keep my arm locked out, my bone structure provides a solid platform to support the weight. The toughest part of the movement is going from the bottom position to the kneeling position and keeping the weight stabilized. It looks easy but requires a decent amount of core strength.

Looked good up to the point where you were about to lose your balance (on the way up).

Continue to work on your stability and you should see some vast improvements

I really think more than anything else it was the lack of doing them. I used to do them a lot back in the summer and haven't really done any similar work in awhile.
