Excellent video. It explained the get-up very well. Thanks.

By the way, the flag in the background is backwards. The canton needs to be on the left side.

Excellent video. Very much appreciated.

A client mentioned wanting to work on Turkish getups so that will really help. Her shoulder flexibility is horrible though, so that might have to be the first priority.

Interesting how the first two variations use leg movements we do in BJJ (standing up in base and rocking your hips forward). Guess those are the best ways to get off the ground while keeping your torso upright.

Cool instructional video Jason. That is the best detailed explanation of form and body movement I have seen yet in describing proper execution of the Get-Ups. I don’t own any KBs yet but I can certainly practice this form and exercise with my DBs. To be honest, I have shied away from doing Get-Ups in the past but I will certainly start doing them now.


BTW: cute doggie. If I were taping something mine would be barking his fool head off. Then I would have to keep re-editing or put him in the closet.

Excellent video Jason. I usually do the squat variation but that's largely due to the fact that I've not ever really paid attention to the fact that there are two lunge styles that can be performed. Thanks, much clearer now.

Great video, I've always done the overhead squat variation because the lunge variations I was never too sure about them and the overhead squat version just worked so I went with that. In your opinion for someone not comfortable with the TGU which style would you recommend? My wife really doesn't feel comfortable with these at all and pretty much just avoids them.

allen, i'm no expert, but i think that TGUs are sort of uncomfortable the first time you do them, no matter what. it's one of those things, like OHS, that sucks the first couple (or more) times, but as you start getting the form down, it gets easier...until you up the weight :msn-wink:

i've been told that the first lunge variation is best for beginners, for the reasons that it requires less "shoulder and thoracic flexibility", to quote the video.
