iPhone App Review: Good Food Near You

Posted by in News

You read magazines and blog posts that list what food choices you should be making when eating out.   However, if you are like me, you find it hard to remember the best menu option at every restaurant.  I do take my food choices pretty seriously, but I’m not going to […]

Posted by in News

Party, BBQ, buffet, wedding, meet and greets… We all have social events to attend but don’t let them make you fat!  Weddings, holidays, birthdays…we associate all of these things with eating and drinking and therefore allow ourselves to indulge or get carried away and then have to deal with the […]

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!
