IntermediateKettlebell Turkish Get-Up (Lunge style)

The Kettlebell Turkish Get-Up (Lunge style) is a great exercise for strengthening and toning the core and upper body. It involves lying on the floor and pressing a kettlebell to the top position with the elbow extended. Keeping the kettlebell locked out, the user then pivots to the opposite side and uses the non-working arm to assist in driving forward to the lunge position. From there, the user will use their free hand to push themselves to a seated position and then to one knee. Finally, while looking up at the kettlebell, the user will slowly stand up, before reversing the motion back to the starting position. This exercise is great for improving stability and balance, as well as overall strength.
