How to Do the Turkish Get-Up: Step-by-Step Tutorial

June 15, 2022

If you’re new to get-ups, start here! 📍

This is the step by step, easy to follow tutorial on the kettlebell Turkish getup you’ve been looking for.

Now that we’ve fixed 30 (!!) common problems with the get-up in our five-part troubleshooting series, it’s time to learn the full get-up, soup to nuts.

Here are two important pointers for when you’re first learning the get-up:

🎈 Practice it unweighted first – no bell.

👟 Then, practice it with a shoe balanced on your fist.

It’s key to learn the positions and transitions before you add weight.  If you load your get-up with a kettlebell before you’ve learned the basic steps, you could put your shoulders, joints, and overall safety at risk.

Respect the kettlebell!  Learn the movement first, then do it with a bell.
