Here is another CrossFit favorite: The Turkish Get-Up. This is more often done with a kettlebell or dumbell. Using a barbell makes it much more challenging. The movement starts lying flat on the floor and moves through the “Get-Up” portion (pictured)and tops out standing with the barbell overhead. The barbell is then switched to the other hand while still fully extended overhead and the sequence is reversed. This is some serious core training!
