BirthFIT Loves the Turkish Get Up
The Turkish Get Up is one of the greatest exercises to do pregnant or not. The movement stresses the shoulder in such a way that it has to operate properly and enhances proprioception throughout the glenohumeral joint. The TGU also demands attention of an individual’s core and diagonal stabilizing and strength systems. Take a look and practice with anything (shoe, water bottle, whatever you find).
20 Turkish Get Ups (10 Each Side)
- The weight on the TGU should be medium-heavy. You may think about doing two in a row but no more.
- The run can be a 500m row or a 400m walk.
