Turkish Get Up Corrective: Heel Drive

Help your Turkish get up with this one tip!

If you struggle to get up on to your elbow during the Turkish Get Up then this tip could be for you. If you find your leg kicking up and your body falling back during this moment it may be because your hip flexor is being over active during this phase. The best way to stop the hip flexor being too active and the leg kicking up is to engage your glutes.

Follow these simple check points to help activate your glute more and make this stage of the Turkish get up much smoother.
1) Extend straight leg long away from the body
2) Flex toes to the roof
3) Drive heel away from body throughout movement

Watch the short video below learn how the heel drive may help your TGU.
