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.
