The Get-Up Part 3: Going Down [5 Mistakes to Fix]

May 25, 2022

If you’re still fuzzy on where to place your hand on the ground during the get-down, I get it.  I had no idea what I was doing when I first learned the kettlebell get-up.  We all have to start at the beginning, right?

Well, it’s time to finally learn exactly WHERE and HOW to place your hand on the ground in the right spot so you can nail the kettlebell get-up.  Every.  Single.  Time.

Welcome to part three of our get-up series! 🥳

In part one and part two, we covered the 15 most common problems I see during the first half of the kettlebell get-up.  The part where you go… UP.

In this video, we’re fixing all the issues that can go wrong when you’re going DOWN.  Specifically, the first two steps of the get-down:

  • The reverse lunge
  • The half-kneeling to windmill

As you know, there are a lot of little make-or-break details in the turkish get-up.  That’s why we’re breaking things down into small digestible chunks for ya.

Watch this one and make sure you’re not smashing your knee into the ground (or worse?) in your get-down!
