Turkish get-ups are a great accessory exercise for Olympic weightlifting, as they’re excellent for developing core-to-extremity, total body strength. Sounds like something CrossFitters would be interested in. The get-ups are a small, but valuable part of our skill/strength work for Wednesday. The combination of balance and strength required to execute a proper Turkish get-up is useful in improving our ability to stabilize in an overhead position. This stability is essential to a good snatch or jerk.
