How To Do The Turkish Get-Up

Field sport enthusiasts may actually do the Turkish Get Up for themselves, or they may have seen a favorite player or teammate going through the process. Those in the second category, who have not personally experienced the positive effects of the exercise, are apt to scratch their head in bewilderment upon seeing it. Many have wondered if such an odd looking process can actually prove useful on the field. It can. The Turkish Get Up is known for being an amazing all-round exercise with multiple body benefits, including increased shoulder and hip mobility, increased torso rotation, greater muscular endurance and a stronger core.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although it looks deceptively dumb and less than useful to the uninitiated, the Turkish Get Up actually increases both shoulder and hip mobility.
  • The strange-looking move is also useful for increasing muscle endurance and core strength.
  • Torso rotation, which is a key need for most field sports, is also enhanced by regular use of the Turkish Get Up.

“The fact that you can train all of these attributes with one movement makes it a go-to exercise in my book—even if it does prompt some perplexed looks.”
