  • Why everyone should be doing Turkish Get Ups

     

    You will probably have noticed the recent reemergence of the coaches’ favourite exercise - The Turkish Get Up (TGU). Some people love it, but the majority hate it. I though it would be a good time to put my case forward as to why everybody should be doing them more often than not.   The
