I remember getting taught the Turkish Get Up Technique several years ago and realising how it took so much out of you once you'd learnt to do it right.
The great thing is that anyone can benefit from performing the Turkish Get Up if you have the mobility to do so.
If you want to really FEEL what your body is capable of, a Turkish Get Up (TGU) is my favourite exercise to perform.
By the end of this post, you will have a great insight to Turkish Get Up Technique, and how and why to do them.
Most days, you put your body posture through the wringer without even thinking about it.
We sit in cars during our morning commute, followed by more sitting at work, and potentially more hours staring into smartphones or the TV. This can cause us to form a “hunched back” position, making us look more like a bell ringer than a bell lifter.
Ready to restore that upright posture?
If you have been in a gym or worked with a trainer, you have most likely seen or used the roll mat shaped tube known as a foam roller.
When done properly, the benefits of foam rolling to you are numerous. It can help prevent injuries, aid in recovery, reduces pain and muscle tightness, and even strengthen your core. I want to share with you the most commonly useful rolls you can do . . .
You train because you want to feel and look better, or see a physiological improvement for an activity. You need to stay healthy and injury free to do this well.
Total Rebuild screens the movement of all of its clients to make sure we are actually helping you and giving you the training you need to improve, the only class/coaching facility in Plymouth to do this.
The following outlines the basics of the Functional Movement Screen, along with some of the compelling benefits it offers.
You want to get fit. You've joined a gym, started some classes or are maybe even taking personal training. Sometimes though, your schedule is too manic for you to get away, or you are not doing enough between your PT sessions.
What can you do? Can you really get a great workout around the house?
I've had many times whilst being away in the military or working abroad without access to a gym where I've had to create my own activity outside of the equipment I would usually have in a gym. I'd like to share with you 3 things you can do to stay consistent . . .
My first contact with kettlebells was seeing soviet military troops training with them, all in neat rows, all perfectly in time with instructions being shouted to the hundreds of them over a tannoy. A few years later I got the opportunity to become an instructor and have loved teaching people how to get a killer workout with them ever since.
This is why I want to give you some of the key benefits of training with kettlebells and why we love them so much at Total Rebuild.
