Quote: "To hell with circumstances, I create opportunities." - Bruce Lee
The Turkish Get Up is a functional exercise that requires all the muscles of the body to work together in a coordinated matter. Before modern gyms were invented, the Turkish Get Up was performed by a lot of strongmen back in the day such as Sig Klein.
It was an exercise that was a true test of strength. If you want an exercise that will get you into shape in record time and also give you functional strength, then the Turkish Get Up is for you.
