Damien's Odd Lift No 8 - Turkish Get Up

Odd lifts week 8

sure everyone knows this but it's on the list and I need to do more core work. wobbled my way up to 24kg with a kettlebell. forgot how hard it is. it may see it's way back in to my regular cycle. no video either, was by myself and the flipping camera kept falling over and other times I lined it up wrong and it was filming a wall or something.

I21. Turkish Get Up
A dumbbell, kettlebell or barbell is used for this lift. The lift begins with the lifter lying on his/her back on the platform holding the implement in one hand above the body with a straight arm perpendicular to the platform. Once in this position, an official will give the command to start the lift. The lifter must rise to a standing position, holding the implement overhead with a straight arm throughout. The lifting arm must stay perpendicular to the lifting platform. The lifter may use the free hand to brace against the body or the platform during the execution of the lift, but must not touch the implement or the lifting arm. The implement may rotate in any direction. Once standing with the implement overhead, the implement motionless and the lifter’s feet in line with the body, an official will give a command to end the lift.
Here is an old video of Turkish Get Ups.
