Iron Tamer David Whitley teaches Rocco The Turkish Get Up

By on October 29, 2009

I called David Whitley (yes the guy that bends nails and shit!) and told him I was coming down to Louisville to check out Bootcamp Bootcamp an event for Fitness Professionals who own bootcamp businesses to learn how to make more money.  Part of that learning process is learning new ways to torture clients and bootcamp customers… and kettlebells are a great way to crush a client in short amount of time.

Now the reason I called David to tell him this is because I knew there would be a shitload of Kettlebells in Louisville and I really wanted to work on my Turkish Get Up.  I felt that I just couldn’t get it down correctly and there is no one in the world that I trust more than David.  There’s a lot of moving parts to the Turkish Get Up and if you don’t keep your body in the correct positioning you can bet on injury.

I wanted to record this whole process because I have seen so many different variations of the Turkish Get Up and wanted to know the way that David taught it because it seems the natural way to do it.  Watch this video and have fun learning how I learned the Turkish Get Up from the one and only Iron Tamer… David Whitley.
