Keep your eye on the bell – Where the head goes the body follows. You may need to divert your gaze temporarily from time to time but your eyes should be on the bell to guide you.
Keep an active arm – This will keep your arm steady and prevent the noodle-arm. Many times when people claim the exercise is too difficult or the weight too heavy is because they’re not keeping enough tension and the arm is too loose.
Smooth speed is the goal– In the haste to get it over with or thinking speed means mastery, many lifters rush through the steps of the Turkish Get-Up and end up performing a sloppy version of the exercise. There’s nothing wrong with performing the movement fast as long as it done properly.
Focus! – Pay attention! Seriously, pay attention. If you can chat or get distracted while doing the Turkish Get-Up you either need a heavier weight or a more difficult version. Keep challenging that body! WOD
