turkish get ups

This routine is one of my favorites when I am working out.  In the past I have always used a dumbbell  because it was easier to perform the exercise.  This routine is supposed to be done with a barbell, but that requires a lot of arm and shoulder strength to maintain the balance of the bar.  Recently I replaced the dumbbell with the barbell and yeah, it’s much harder.

My prescription weight is 45-65lbs for this routine.  I start out working with a 38lbs barbell for a warmup and then for the workout, I did 2 reps on each side for 3 rounds.

To complete the turkish get up, performs these steps in reverse order and that is one rep.
