Re: 135 barbell turkish get up

Nice. I noticed you started with the bar parallel to your body. I have not seen this. Do you do that weight with the bar going across your body above your head ? Or do you find parallel start to be easier ?
Excellent work on that......

Re: 135 barbell turkish get up

Honestly, I could not figure out a better way to get the bar in place, and I train in my garage so I have very limited space to work with, there is probably a better way to get it in place, I just haven't figured it out yet. thanks for you comment.

You might want to try putting the bar at your feet. Then rolling it towards your chest as you lay down after it rolls to your tummy. Then basically bench press it up. Switch to the one hand grip, and away you go. It might actually be easier with the weights distributed across your body. Rather then all the weight being on one side at the start.
Here is a video of chip doing it.

The turkish starts at 3:22 in the video. He edited out rolling the bar over his body, but you can see the bench press to one hand for positioning it over you. Anyhow hope that helps a little. Again. Great work. Hope I get to that level at some point. I'm not that heavy yet, but it sure is fun using the bar, huh.......

Re: 135 barbell turkish get up

thanks alot! It's nice getting positive feedback, I tell my wife when I get new PR's but the numbers don't mean much to her so i get the same unenthusiastic "good job" every time.
