great Turkish Get-Ups & Running

Turkish get-ups will kick your ass.

THE WARMUP
DROM progression
then 2 rounds of (15 each set):
* overhead squats
* reverse sit-ups
* back extensions
* seated cable row
* push-ups

THE WORKOUT (as prescribed)
Five rounds for time of:
Turkish Get-up, 45 pound barbell, 21 reps
Run 400 meters

Couple things:
1. I ain't doing Turkish get-ups with the barbell. I don't have that kind of room, and I don't have that kind of core strength & stability. Yet.
2. I've never done more than 5 Turkish get-ups in a row, so I opted to do:

THE WORKOUT (my wussified version)
Five rounds for time of:
Turkish Get-up, 20 lb kettlebell, 21 reps
Run 400 meters

I made it through 2 rounds and quit. QUIT! DNF! *sad trombone*

Those mothers are tough, man. Tough!

Afterwards I did 2 rounds, 15 each:
* face pulls with resistance band
* thoracic extensions on the foam roller
* scapula push-ups. gotta give the serratus anterior more love. I hear.

Anyway, that was that.

And how was your day?

    Oh, and it was 12 reps of TGUs each set, not 21. Why? Because it kicked my ass.
