Re: 135 barbell turkish get up

Everyone is congratulating you and I should too, because that was AWESOME! However, your elbow missed lockout a couple of times during the movement, and I was scared watching the video, lol.... so do it again under more control! :P

No, seriously, that's awesome display of strength.

Re: 135 barbell turkish get up

Great work man.

Looked like a hole in the garage door just waiting to happen on a few moments, but you pulled it off. Keeping that kind of weight locked during all that movement ain't easy, and I was freakin impressed you pressed it back up to lockout with just that 1 arm and all that instability. Amazing...

The dismount looked a little scary, but I've never TGU'd more than 45#, so what the hell would I know? NICE job!
The key to victory is discipline, and that means a well made bed.
