Re: Turkish get up pr...almost

So close! The return to the floor is always the hardest. I just worked my way up to 100 lbs. with the KB last week, and the return was terrifying. Haven't tested it out for a while, but I'd imagine the barbell version is harder than KB, right?

It's debatable. I personally like the feel of a barbell, and it is usually hard to find any kettlebells over 3 pood. Hopefully I'll get this next time.

Oh yes, much harder.

145 is a great BB get-up. Nice work man!

Re: Turkish get up pr...almost

I don't want to hijack, but while we are on the topic, I am curious as to others' opinion on the matter.

What constitutes a successful rep in terms of returning to the floor?

For example, if I am on my butt and opposite hand, needing only to return my back to the floor. With a PR weight I am always slightly crashing into the floor so that my elbow unlocks and I may have to secure the weight with the opposite hand at the very last minute.

What say we?

That's close enough in my book. I don't know if there is a TGU standard list, but from what you are saying it sounds like the bulk of the work is done at that point.

Agreed.

Thread starter, that was bada$$ man!! Keep it up, you are almost there!!!

I am not sure regarding BB vs KB. It used to be a no brainer to me that BB was harder, but I was never able to put to the test due to not having a KB heavy enough to match my BB TGU PR, which is 109lbs. I tried a human TGU w/ a client that weights 115lbs and couldn't even get up
