…sounds like a dance doesn’t it? The Turkish Get-Up. Sounds like something only performed on wedding reception dance floors. But no. The Turkish Get-Up is no dance. No, no. The Turkish Get-Up (or my version of one) is a really great exercise that I just started adding to my routine last week after my husband introduced me to them. It targets all your muscles at once and gets your heart rate up in such a short amount of time. I’m in love!!! All you need is a soft, flat surface, two 5 lb. weights and your willing body.
(Be prepared for what you’re about to see…I am NOT in a professionally lit workout studio with a hair and makeup team. (What!!!?!) I know. But really, who can actually relate to all those perfect workout videos where the woman has flawless make-up, no sweat and stiff hair? This is what we all look like working out…right?)
