You are about to enroll in the most comprehensive TGU step-by-step course currently offered on the Web.
Designed by Coach Ekaterina (Kat) Tabakova after over a decade of teaching thousands of people to master the correct technique of the elusive and powerful Turkish GetUp.
Performing TGU correctly boosts all-body mobility and joint longevity, improves posture and core strength, and sharpens mental focus. There is a reason why TGU is often called 'Yoga with Weights'.
However, in order to reap the benefits of Turkish Get Up, it must be done correctly and progressed appropriately. Othwerise, people tend to experience issues like:
feeling that TGU is 'too difficult' and impossible to learn - this is a common misconception because TGU is hardly ever taught correctly.
Being unable to to lift a heavier weight - have you seen small ladies TGU 24-32kg kettlebells? While beneficial at any KB size, and even without a KB at all, TGU delivers best results when performed with a weight you cannot easily press, or heavier. With correct technique and progression, you too will be able to lift your optimal weight.
Sore forearms, wrists, shoulders, elbows, hips, and lower back - all stem from lack of progression and therefore lack of technique, strength and mobility when performing the TGU. In this course, you will build strength, mobility and technique step by step, so by the time you perform the TGU, your body will be ready for it.
Being afraid to go up a KB size or going up and dropping the KB - you will learn how to 'own' the current kettlebell before going up a size without stress or risk of injury.
Why an entire course on TGU?
First, TGU is one of the most valuable exercises one can ever practice. Whether you're a competitive athlete, a martial artist, a busy parent or grandparent, or just someone who wants to improve their mobility, body resilience, and joint longevity in under 10 minutes per day, the TGU will make you a better mover, less prone to injury, and a more effectively functioning human.
Second, contrary to what you might have seen and read on the internet, TGU is not just one movement. In fact, learning it as if it is, is where most fitness enthusiasts go wrong, lose most of its benefits and fail to maximize their own potential for flexible strength.
TGU is a combination of separate exercises - 6 in total - linked together, otherwise called a 'chain'. Every link is a stand-alone exercise in its own right, and when performed with correct technique, each one is transformative for the body. When linked together, those exercises form a chain which is commonly called "The Turkish Get Up".
