The Perfect Pair Workout

The perfect pair: the kettlebell snatch and the turkish get up (TGU).

The snatch is an explosive pulling movement that trains the hamstrings, shoulders, back, arms, and core - as well as cardiovascular endurance. The TGU, on the other hand, is a slow stability exercise that trains every muscle in the body. Both exercises require proper technical execution and mental focus.

Complete 10 snatches on each arm, and then 1 TGU on each arm. Repeat for 10, 15, or 20 minutes.

To make this more challenging, increase the weight on the snatch and/or the TGU each round.
