Fitness Loves of the Week #7
This week has been crazy for me, and thank you all for understanding how busy I’ve been!
I haven’t really had a chance to make up any new workouts this week since the ones I’ve been doing have been bootcamp related or steady state cardio. But, I do have a move that I want to highlight from one of Tina’s bootcamp workouts! That move is the turkish get-up.
A turkish get-up is a full body move that can be done using a kettlebell or dumbbell.
When I first saw this move listed on Tina’s workout I had no idea what it was. I talked to Chris and also did some online research. I discovered that it is great thing to do to work on functional strength. The turkish get-up was actually really challenging and all I used was a 5lb weight doing 5 reps per side! One thing that was really important for me to remember was to keep my elbow straight. Here’s a video so you can get another idea of what it looks like.
So, do you wanna participate in FLOW?
“Fitness Loves of the Week” (FLOW) is a link-up party similar to What I Ate Wednesday except it’s all about fitness! On Fridays I will post either a routine that I have created that week, a picture or video of a move that I have done, or even a post abouta workout. You guys simply do something similar! If you’ve had a great workout/fitness post earlier in the week and you don’t want to make up a new one, you don’t have to! Simply grab the picture from my site, paste it in your Friday post, then when you link up you can use the link from whatever post of yours you want!
