Hip Openers for a Strong and Healthy Turkish Get Up

Are your hips tight? This may be one of your limiting factors to a solid and strong Get Up.
Try these two exercises as shown in the video below with a super light bell. This will help you open up your hips, ankles, inner thighs, all while creating a smooth overhead lockout. If you’re just starting out you can do this with a super light bell or no bell at all.

Before doing a full Get Up warm up with this for 2 full rounds.
Kneeling Lunge Pumps 5 es Kneeling Lunge Windmills 5 es Let me know if your Get Up feels better after these 2 quick focus drills. 🔑 Make sure the front heel stays down for the lunge pumps and windmills 🔑 Have the back toes curled underneath for full ground stability and foot work. 🔑 Ideally have your heel and back ankle aligned for the kneeling windmills.

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway
