This article by Chip Conrad is featured in our newsletter going out today and I wanted to make everyone aware of it.
This thread is also the official feedback/Q & A thread!
For the FULL article (included pics and videos), see the following link - Wannabebig Serious About Muscle Newsletter - September 16thAny strength den off the beaten path knows about this move. Gyms that subscribe to strength and performance first, where Kettlebells and bumper plates are ubiquitous but searching for a machine of any sort would prove fruitless. Where iron trumps fluff and the ‘smoothie bar’ is a water cooler hiding in the corner, these gyms know about the Turkish Get Up.
It was staple amongst the Physical Culture in counties a bit more to the East of ours, particularly amongst wrestlers and hand balancers about a century ago. But it proved to be hard work, and so, like a collection of great lifts that lost popularity, they all but disappeared in the commercial fitness market because they’re hard to sell.
