RKC Training 1.0: The Turkish Get Up
The real expert on this lift is Tim, and I intend on harassing him to get some clips and training info for this lift up for everyone this week. In essence the whole movement is quite simple. You lie on your back and pick up a weight, be it a person, barbell, kettle bell, or bear. Then you stand up while keeping it overhead. Then depending on your mood you either lie back down or do some other fancy movements. When the weight gets really big it is usually the best to just lie back down. Though currently there are some rumours about Tim windmilling some weights in the three digits. What the carny does in the video is demonstrate that when the weight enters the three digits that the really pretty form that everyone shows off when they play with their tiny little pink kettlebells that weigh about as much as a hamster becomes harder to keep up. That being said we have been promised that he will execute perfect form when he does this with body weight, and that he will also post some rehab clips to help people keep their bodies in shape if they decide to try this nonsense.
