May is going to be a big month of pressing on the VIP forum. Just FYI! Until then, I want to focus on a unique routine that involves a press AND the Turkish get up.
The Turkish Get Up to Press
Pressing through the “check points” on your get up does a number of things. First up, this routine will force you to move slowly through your get up. To perform this routine correctly once you reach the seated position, you will perform a military press on the ground while sitting. Next, you will move to the side of your get up and perform a side/ crooked press. Once you get to the lunge position you will press again, and finally at the top of your get up you will do one strict military press. Moving slowing through your get up will force you to maintain tension and control at each check point on your get up. TIME UNDER TENSION IS KEY TO LIFTING MASTERY!
The second part of this routine is all about the press in different positions. This will challenge your grip and tax your lat muscles in a VERY unique way. If you are in for serious pressing and want to increase the power of your military press, doing presses through your get up will most certainly turn you into a powerful pressing machine!
Check out the video below to see how to perform this routine correctly. HEADS UP! Do NOT do presses on the get-down portion of this Turkish get up routine. Press on the way up only folks!
If you want to train this routine yourself, start with 3 sets on both the right and left side and work up to 5 sets over 3-4 weeks.
