The Get-Up Part 4: Going Down, Cont’d [6 Mistakes to Fix]

June 1, 2022

Do you ever feel a painful ping in your shoulder when you’re in the elbow or palm position of the get-up?

If you do, it may be because you’ve placed your shoulder in a less-than-ideal position, putting unnecessary stress on the joint, muscles, and tendons.

When you add in the weight of a kettlebell and you repeat this not-so-good position, it can be a recipe for shoulder pain, and even injury. 😣

I’m not a doctor (far from it), but I do know a thing or two about the get-up — like how to do get-ups to make your shoulders stronger and more resilient, and avoid putting them at risk.

Good news: we made it to PART 4 of our get-up series!

🎉 WOO!!

In this video, I’m helping you fix six wonky things that happen during the last portion of the get-up:

  • the transition from windmill down to palm,
  • from palm down to elbow,
  • and from elbow down to back.

You’ll learn how to hit the safest and strongest positions for your shoulders, and some other handy tidbits as well.

Btw, have you watched parts 1 through 3 yet?

They’re all under 5 minutes long, and they’re helpful.  Do your homework, watch parts 1 through 3, and meet me back here when you’re done.  Ok?
