Breaking Down the Turkish Get Up: Roll-to-Elbow

by Jared Woolever

The Turkish Get Up has been one of our favorite exercises for quite awhile now. I know I’ve been using it myself, and with nearly all my clients, for a little over 5 years now. Even though I’ve been doing Get Up’s for many years now, I still haven’t quite perfected the motion yet.

I know what you’re probably thinking… 5 years and you still haven’t mastered the Get Up?

Yeah… 5+ years later and I still work on dialing in the technical aspects of this move. Going through the full movement will certainly challenge you, and if you continually work on the fine details of the Get Up, you’re mobility, stability, and coordination will drastically improve.

This is actually the third piece I’ve written on the Get Up. I’m working on putting together an article for each phase of the Get Up. Learning the Get Up in phases is the ideal way of teaching this move, so I figured I’d break it down into the distinct phases we use ourselves, and with our clients, on a regular basis.

The phase I want to discuss here will be the Roll-to-Elbow. This is the third phase I’ll be covering, so be sure to catch up if you’ve missed the first two articles. You can check out those here:

Featured Exercise: Split Squat

We realized that one of our strengths is teaching exercises, but our blog doesn’t really have a whole lot of exercise demo’s.

So……We’re going to fix that with our Featured Exercise Section of the blog.

With our first video we bring you the split squat.

I know, you already know everything about the split squat right? You may be surprised actually.

Check out the video below to get some great cues for the “hip dominant” (kinda) split squat.
