The get-up is the most technical lift in the kettlebell world. Which is why it’s so important to start it off right.
Too often we see people doing their get-ups without a “packed” shoulder – that is, their shoulder is not packed down in the socket.
Without that packed shoulder, we can’t fully engage our lat. And without the full support of our big, strong lats, our get-ups will suffer.
Not only will they get a bit sloppy (and dangerous), but we greatly limit the weight we can use.
Start your get-ups right by packing that shoulder and stay safe and strong throughout the entire movement.
