Jeff Martone demonstrates a somewhat advanced Turkish Get-Up technique (c. crossfit.com)

The Sotts Press: I did it from in front of the neck. This looks way easier. (c. crossfit.com)
Total Time: ?? (Stopped the clock to put shoes on after the first set, forgot to restart it for the second set. First set took 9 minutes, 3rd took 7, so assume 8 for the mystery 2nd set?  If so, 24 minutes...ish.)

Wrote a bunch of stuff, which blogger went and lost. In a very weird way. And then it auto-saved the change. That kind of sucked.  Long story short: TGUs were difficult, and required broken up sets to shake out arm joints.  Sotts presses were done wrong, which made them both more difficult and worse on the knees. BEHIND the neck is the way to go.
