» TGU Roll to Press Active Straight Leg Raise
This is a drill to increase mobility of the hamstrings and stability of the core and hips as part of the Turkish Get Up press to elbow.
Begin with a roll to press and remain in a supine position with one leg bent witht the foot flat on the floor and the other leg straight. The bent leg is the one that has the same hand on the kettlebell.
Keeping the leg locked out straight, lift it off the ground as high as possible towards the kettlebell without lifting the hip off the ground. The other leg remains in the start position with no movement. This trains the individual with tight hamstrings to allow the core and hip flexors to produce hip flexion without over engaging the hamstrings and moving the kettlebell off the vertical line.
