Spend the first 10-15 Min working on Turkish Get-ups with either a Dumbbell or Kettlebell.
Try both legs, and different weights.
Watch Jeff Malone explain the Turkish Get-ups
(I changed the number of rounds so that you are able to finish the workout without feeling rushed. Great job to those who finished 4 rounds!)
NOT for time
- Farmers Carry around the building (M-45 W-30)
- 5 Turkish Get-ups on each side**
- 15 Toes to rings
**You choose the weight. Choose a challenging weight that allows you to perform the movement effectively and safely.
Again this wod is not timed, focus on doing the movements correctly.
Record weight used for the WOD.

LOVE seeing a “not for time” wod! Sometimes the best thing to think about is 1) just finishing; and 2) doing every movement to the best standard possible. Have fun with these, everyone! TGUs are a GREAT exercise.
2 rnds @ 45# FC, 25# TGU
During the 2nd FC I readjusted my grip only to destroy a blood blister on my left hand, so I spent the rest of the class doing doing sets of those crazy banded situps. CrossFail.
Great work to the rest of the 9:30 class who kept going!
