About the Full Turkish Get Up

The Full Turkish Get Up is a total body exercise that targets core strength and mobility.


This complex movement builds shoulder muscles, and all round strength and conditioning.

Written Instructions

  1. Lie on your back on the floor and hold a dumbbell or kettlebell in one hand with your arm fully extended above your chest. Bend the knee of the same side to a 90-degree angle.
  2. Start by lifting the dumbbell to the sky, and crunching onto your opposite elbow. Keep the elbow of the arm holding the dumbbell locked out.
  3. Hike your hips in the air and sweep the straight leg underneath the body, stepping back and settling onto your knee.
  4. Shift the weight away from your hand and onto your knee and front foot as you bring your torso upright. Push to a standing position, keeping the dumbbell lifted the entire time. Lower slowly back to the ground.
