Re: September: 'Turkish Get-up' challange

So I only did 24 of my buy-in yesterday and have 12 to do today to finish catching up.

All those places that press into the floor during a TGU? Sore.

Did my first three with the 12-kg KB. I'm pretty sure I got top marks for "Form: Sucked."

Re: September: 'Turkish Get-up' challange

OK, playing catch-up here, so after finally getting the weights right
to get all the way thru Big 21 on the third go-around, I did the following:

20
20
17
9
10
76 Total

With 50 left over, and tomorrow's 24, I owe 74 manana.
I am using the 35# which ain't so bad, maybe 44 lbs would have been the
right 'challenge' weight, but I can definitely say the 53# is too much at present;
when the reps get above 15, perfect form and concentration is
mandatory.

...14
...16
...14
...16
.+.14 = 74
So 50 left to buy in and 24 today, man I'm glad that's over, and I'm glad it's only 35#. That's challenge enough.

Sorry that i haven't been posting, but i have been pretty sick the last few days. I know i have fallen quite a bit behind. i might just have to let this challenge go if i am too far behind and just get ready for the october challenge.


good job james, matt, and tirzah! keep it up.

Re: September: 'Turkish Get-up' challange

Today is the 14th, so that's 28 for today, and I had unfinished bidness to settle yesterday regarding the Big 21, so that means another catch up for the 13th
(26 more).

I did poorly on the Snatch and Clean and Jerk test; I felt very flat. While this could very well be slow recovery due to age, I blame the TGU challenge and all the dang catching up in the last couple days.

I confirmed again tonight how subtle yet punishing an exercise it really is by
going straight through with 28+26=54. Loving that 35-pounder!

30 with 35# KB,

These have a unique whole-body wear pattern;
I'm just all over tired, but not sore or fatigued
in any isolated areas.

Re: September: 'Turkish Get-up' challange

Can't believe I missed this thread all month! Way too late to buy in now, but I'm going to try for my max load TGU today. Shooting for 90-100# for 1 rep each side w/ barbell, woot.
