Workout of the Day: TGU skill work (video) to high pelvis

Then, Re-Test!

12 min AMRAP

5/5 DB snatch (45/25)

10 Burpees

15 KB swings (53/35)

Objective, Measurable, REPEATABLE!  Here we go, just like a benchmark, let's see how we compare to 1/2/15 (click here for results board photo to see how you did that day).  For our skill work, we want you all to focus on the first 3 main stages of the Turkish Get Up, which require the best of both worlds, for both shoulders, when it comes to stability.  Each stage is an opportunity to create stable shoulder positions, both in closed chain (hand on the ground) and open chain (hand in the air holding object- shoe, weight, person, etc), and can help work through movement dysfunction AND teach positions of stability, which can lead to increased performance and injury resilience.  Yes, that's important.  Check out the video above.  It's long, but informative, so geek out on it if you have a few minutes.  I think this is my favorite movement, so if you have any questions, hit me up!
