  • Great videos as always!,, i have been practicing the Turkish get up for a while and i have managed to execute 12 get ups on each side in 10 minutes with a 24kg kettlebell.
    Do you believe it is time to upgrade to the 28kg kettlebell?

  • Some instructors will stand on that hand so you do not move it. Get a friend to do that for you maybe. Oh yea, do it barefooted. Do It More Better. Thanks Wildman

  • Brilliant video. I’m doing simple and sinister and felt I was struggling with the get ups. Now I know why (doing 2 of the 3 things wrong). You’ve almost definitely saved me from injury. Thanks Mark.

  • Thank you for this! I haven’t ben bringing my knee back far enough. Keep these videos coming. I’ve been doing kettlebell for 5 years now and I’m still learning.

  • Thanks for the great video. The turkish get up is one of my favorite full body exercises and I use often in my workouts so I wanted to be sure I was cuing it properly, your vid helped. Stay safe

  • I have non-competition kettlebells. I find it really hard/painful to not let my wrist bend slightly (because the bell is smaller, it doesn’t support the weight on my forearm like a competition one would). I feel it causing bad-form, but I’m not sure what I can do other than buy new bells? Any ideas/suggestions? Mark or anyone?

  • Turkish Get-Up is rife with injury landmines. Mr. Wildman does an excellent job of taking us into battle as he breaks down the form into its crucial parts. I appreciate this instruction.

  • Thanks again for this top notch content. You did all the examples with your support hand off the mat, was that on purpose or no?

  • I’ve been waiting for Mark to cover the Turkish Get Up. Excellent. Points 2 and 3 are new to me and I’ll be practicing them tomorrow.

  • I have been watchful of my hand at the 45%. The Turkish getup is the hardest of them all. I have watched numerous videos, but I ultimately had to perform the movements before the learning could receive further instruction. I have been mindful to not be constantly be shifting my hand position. You are an excellent coach, and would be even better in person. I salute you!

  • Thank you for putting the 3 things right at the beginning. No one wants a video thats like a recipe blog that you need to go through the story first.

  • I use competition style bells as you do in your video, but I have large and long hands. I find when I hold the bell it sits on the back of my wrist (hurts) not below it because my hands are so long, but if I do a very minor break of the wrist it settles the bell on a tolerable location just below my wrist. Do you think this is acceptable?

  • Mark I think the most difficult thing in the TGU is when you start to shit down and you do the windmilll, how do you put your knee from the kneeling position to the lying position. The opposite of your 3rd tip here. SO I come down from a TGU, put 90 degrees me knee to the ground, windmill. and then when I kick the leg to go to the ground, I feel my shoulder from the support hand to get out of the socket, or kinda like it goes to hit my face. Any tips on that, It doesnt feel good and it feels good ONLY if i change position of my support hand.

  • I’m seeing so many people try to put up heavyweight with a poor hand position and then blame it on the shoulder. The only thing that I’ve found to add to your excellent tutorial is focusing on the pinky finger of the lifting hand, and pulling that entire fist to focus thru the first two knuckles & punch the sky. That extra bit allows me to push my weight up a notch, making the bell feel like a toy. Anytime the 32kg feels like a toy, it’s a good thing!

  • As usual, Mark makes it crystal clear. I’m so glad I found his YouTube channel for kettlebell stuff. It has been keeping me motivated through my short attention span for most forms of physical activity and many failed attempts at the TGU on my non-dominant side.

  • Hi Mark, is it normal if I feel like my wrist is weak? I can easily break the posture of my wrist during mouvements. It’s hard for me to not bending the wrist. How can I fix it or make it stronger?

  • When I watch your videos I feel Like taking an actual class from an actual teacher instead of watching some click bait video from a show off YouTuber. By the way, lots of love and thanks from Turkey. You have got a big fan over here. Seemed like a good idea to say this under a turkish get up video:)

  • More than a month ago I researched TGU to learn the bodyweight version
    MW “Turkish Get Up A Primer” = best result => bought 2 lightweight bells from Amazon FR
    Followed MW narration toward under-control TGU but 8:51 TGU-A Primer is still a faith-based movement
    I do TGU on wooden floor because a slippery mat almost killed me, MW w knee on concrete floor is disconcerting
    Getting toes planted not comfortable for knee
    I think getting better oriented w knees right angles will help w power train to stand up, but I am still not solid on where drive is coming from

  • These are brutal.
    Every kid in gym class should be required to do them, etc… Starting with just the bodyweight movement.
    You’ll end up with better kids.

  • Hey Mark, regarding wrist position…I use hardstyle bells and get bruising/pain on the top of my forearm where the bell rests. My wrist is flat as you per your instruction. Anything I can do to fix that?

  • Excellent tutorial on the finer points of a TGU!!! I more or less discovered these three points as I’ve done more TGUs these last few weeks being cooped up at home and having only a 40 lbs kettlebell to work out with. I also really like your other videos that have been published these last 8 weeks. Thank you.

  • I had a big imbalance between sides on my TGU, the previous video explaining turning the chest to the side was what fixed it for me, love the information.

  • i have the impression that most of the details you insist on also lie in the core of the mechanics of Kung Fu, and your shoes kind of corroborate that.

    thanks again.

  • I watched your previous video on the Turkish Get Up and it really helped me to get it right, I’d never tried it before… the steps were great!

  • excellent video.  i cannot remember how i came across your channel but surely there is a way to y’all some more views and exposure.  many teachers/coaches are not as clear and concise in communicating proper technique as they need to be.  this guy in this video though, i mean, seriously, a 10 yr old kid could understand that.  very impressed with the simple and clear and concise communication style.

  • Thanks Mark, awsome and helpful as usual! I’d go down the block immediatly to have the opportunity to train with you, except I’m in Italy… ��

  • I appreciate your concise videos. At the start, you clearly told us what you would be doing. Then, you showed us in detail. Finally, you wrapped up by reiterating your points. Wish more fitness channels would make the effort to express their ideas as succinctly. Thank you.

  • Can I just say kettlebells are “FUN”!!! ������

    I own a 20 kg, 32 kg, and a 40 kg.
    They are so easy to store that I keep them in my bedroom.

    Around the body swing, and figure 8 between my legs, are my two favorite exercises atm.

    Another thing I do with the 20 kg KB is I put a tea towel through the KB handle hole, grab the towel on both ends to lift the KB with it, and go for a 2 minute walk around the block. Down 2 sets of stairs from my apartment.

    Excellent compound exercise with the focus on the forearm muscles and grip strength.

    Turkish getup?? Maybe in the future.
    In which case I most likely will come back to this video and pay attention to all of your tips and tricks. ����
