Quitting is easy. We have all reached a point when want to quit. The self doubt starts to flow, anxiety starts to build, and before you know it, your done. The reasons why you started are lost in that moment. Pushing through for one more day, could be the day that you make your breakthrough.

Benefits Of The Half Turkish Get Up

Published

on

The Turkish Get-Up is one of the best “bang for your buck” movements I use when I’m in a crunch for time at the gym. It’s one of the best exercises to build total-body strength and improve movement control. The execution is quite tricky, but mastering it is well worth it.

The movement is packed with movement nutrition. You get a healthy dose of balance, shoulder strength, straight and bent arm strength, core work, leg strength and flexibility—and honestly, the list could go on. Importantly, the exercise requires intense focus, especially when transitioning from one movement to the next. By the end of this exercise, you will be drenched while your fat will be shredding serious tears and getting burned.

HOW TO DO IT

Place a dumbbell (you can also use a kettlebell) on the floor and lie faceup next to the weight so that it’s sitting next to your left shoulder.

Roll onto your side into a “fetal” position, and grasp the handle with both hands. Pull the weight close so that it’s touching your chest.

Holding the weight tight to your chest, roll onto your back until you’re lying faceup on the floor again with your legs straight. Bend your left leg and place your left foot flat on the floor. Keep your right leg straight.

With your left hand, press the weight straight above your left shoulder. Keep your wrist and elbow completely straight. Place your right arm out to your side so that it forms a 45-degree angle with your body, palm down. This is the starting position.

In one movement, push off your left foot; punch upward with the weight, and forcefully press your right elbow into the floor so that your torso rises up and your weight shifts onto your right forearm. Your right leg should remain straight. Keep your eyes on the weight the entire time.

Without allowing your forearm or hand to leave the floor, rotate your right hand so that your fingertips are pointing at 45-degree angle away from your body. Then press away from the floor with your right hand as you lift your forearm and lockout your elbow. Pause. Reverse the steps to return to the starting position. That’s 1 rep

Dwayne Johnson never stops working with Jumanji, Ramage, and Hobbs on the way. Even with all of the projects under his belt The Rock still makes time for the gym. There are no excuses for the world’s biggest action star.

The Rock posted a message on Instagram to remind all of his fans it’s just a mental game.

Johnson wrote “Big dogs eat. As many of you know, it ain’t a size or gender thing…it’s a mentality thing. Shout to all my big dogs around the 🌎 as we’re over here quietly on our weekend grind earning sweat equity. Because at the end of the day, we’re always willing to put in the raw hard work for the one thing we relentlessly chase daily – the results. Heavy ass chains around your neck are always optional.”
