Turkish Get-Up - The sandbag Turkish Get-Up is one of the most difficult exercises you will ever perform. Lie on your back with a sandbag held in extended arms. Your goal is to stand up without bending the arms. You can turn to the side, to get to one knee, and then proceed to stand. This challenging movement can serve as a finisher to any workout. This exercise is commonly performed with a dumbbell or kettlebell. The sandbag version is MUCH more challenging. Start with a light bag.
