Turkish Get Up For Golfers

by Coach Stephen on

The Turkish Get Up (TGU) is among the rare exercises that work on Stability, Mobility, and Strength all at the same time. Of course, these are all critical qualities for a consistent and powerful golf swing. This is why we utilize the Turkish Get Up for golfers here at Renegade Golf Training.

It can be performed, in some variation, by almost any golfer with great benefit. It can seem a bit complex at first, which is why I chose to break it up into two videos.

Is it worth taking the time to master?


In this Turkish Get Up for Golfers Part 1 video, “Kettlebell King James” demonstrates the proper setup, basic principles, and the first quarter of the movement:

Key elements to keep in mind:

1) This is a tension exercise, so stay tight

2) Keep the kettlebell or dumbbell directly over your shoulder joint at all times

3) The first move is more of a “roll” than a crunch.

Spend some time and master this portion of the Turkish Get-Up, and stayed tuned for Part 2.

As always, let us know if you have any questions.
