 The Turkish Get Up

 

 

Editor's Note from Dr. Jeffery Tucker: I went to Dr. Justin Brink, a San Jose, CA sports medicine Chiropractor to answer this important question:  Which is worse, having a muscle weakness on both sides of your body--or on just one side?

It's the latter, says Dr. Brink. He suggests learning how to do the Turkish Get Up - a simple self-test you can use to identify problem areas. The upshot: Start to perform the Turkish Get Up on a daily basis and you'll be able to increase your flexibility, size and strength.
