One of the most hated, slow moving strength training movements you can do with one piece of equipment is the Turkish Get Up. It’s fantastic for improving core strength, midline strength, balance- you don’t want that huge KB to land on your head, and teaching you how to maintain your core strength with just one arm. Most women I know start with the lightest thing around- sometimes it’s an eraser, to learn the movement and then you gradually work your way up from there. Pictured here is 35 pound KB and although I can do them, it is brutal. Ten minutes of them is even more brutal and they were not executed as perfectly as you might see on a video.
To learn more about the Turkish Get-Up and how to do them, please refer to the RKC manual for women, here.
