How To Do The Kettlebell Turkish Get Up!

Posted by in Episodes, Fit Life

In this Fit Life, we continue to learn about Kettlebells.  In the last Fit Life, we had an intro and instruction on how to do the Kettlebell Swing.  Today Matt and David instruct us step by step on how to do the Turkish Get Up.  Find more info and other episodes at WithAmyMac.com

You should always start the Get Up without a weight first and then once your form is perfect, add a Bell. 

When you are comfortable with the Get Up, add it to the swing and you have a full body workout!

Combo Kettlebell Workout:

Swings – Swing for 30 seconds and then take 30 seconds off.  Repeat the 30 seconds on/30 seconds off for 3-5 minutes and work your way up to doing this for 7-10 minutes.

Turkish Get Up – perform a TGU on the right and left sides – this usually takes a little over 1 minute to complete on both sides.  Practice until you can do continuous Get Ups, alternating on both sides for several minutes at a time.  Eventually you should be able to work your way up to 7-10 minutes of continuous Turkish Get Ups.

This is about 14-20 minutes of workout — you will feel it the next day!

Switch Your Food Focus to ‘What CAN I Eat?’

Posted by in News

I’ve always frowned on using the word ‘diet’ when referring to losing weight because it just screams “OFF LIMIT FOODS!” and that doesn’t motivate me.   I also don’t make lists of all the foods I can’t eat because that would just make me angry and rebellious.  Instead, I enjoy all […]

Once you’ve learned the technique and practiced the dead lift, you are ready for a workout!

Treadmill Safety Tips to Prevent a Tragedy

Posted by in News

It’s always sad that we have to see a tragedy in order to give ourselves a safety check. That being said, the death of Mike Tyson’s 4 year old daughter, Exodus, due to an accidental hanging by a treadmill cord, reminds us that danger can lurk in every inch of […]

Reason #2 To Fire Your Personal Trainer

Posted by in News

If your trainer has a wandering eye – then you need to fire them. Your trainer should be focused on you at all times throughout the workout.  They shouldn’t be setting up the next exercise or looking at other people around the gym.  If they see other clients or friends […]

Steps to Uncluttering Ourselves

Posted by in News

We were just having this conversation.  Why do we have so much stuff?  Why did we buy half of it?  Is all this stuff why we feel so cluttered? After reading this article, I think I’m going to try to adopt a new plan as well.  I’m also thinking that […]

The Oreos Are Plotting Against Me
