The only exercise you will ever need to do

If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only do one exercise for the rest of your life, what would it be?……ok, that doesn’t make any sense, even stuck on an island forever you could do tons of different exercises.  But for this post’s sake, let’s say you have to choose just one.  

Meet the Turkish Getup

​An exercise that encompasses core and shoulder stability, hip mobility, thoracic extension, coordination, hip extension, motor control, balance and your heart rate will even increase!  

It’s the exercise that has it all, and one of the most important keys is that you must earn each movement.  

When I teach this for the first time we break it down and masters each section.  Once you own it, you can add another segment!  

Instead of me going on and on about the get up, I thought I would share with you my favorite post explaining all the idiosyncrasies of the move courtesy of Tony Gentilcore, who is my favorite strength coach of all time!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork. Check out more at our website
