Kettlebell Get Up Sit Up

Learning how to get up is going to be vital if you're looking for longevity in your fitness routine. Here's a quick How-To for The GetUp Sit Up, one of my favorite core/abdominal movements. This can be done with a kettlebell, dumbbell, medicine ball, a full grown dog or your baby brother.


This is the 1st and 2nd part of the Turkish Get Up (TGU) and a good regression to increase the weight you'd typically use in the TGU. 

This is a staple in our Kettlebell Strength & Conditioning Classes. Try it at home or be an action taker and join our kick starter program (http://www.acumenathletics.com/p/kettlebells-strength.html)

Body Block Hook Into Up Elbow Counter. Muay Thai Boxing Drill



It's a great feeling to land a solid punch to the body but what about being on the receiving end of it?
In this drill, we block the pad holders L/R hook to the body with our elbows and answer back with an up elbow.
Same drill but I'm looking for a difference in the timing. In the first half, you block and then reply with the same side up elbow. In the 2nd half, you go right into your same side up elbow as soon as you feel the pad hit you. This way you'll deliver a counter.
Try it out and let me know how it worked out for you.
