>A Turkish Get-up is my favorite exercise of all time. Lay down flat and extend one arm overhead. If you are new to this exercise, just try it with no weight first, then you can add an appropriate dumbbell or kettlebell like in the pictures below.

What if your pastor’s rousing Sunday sermon on perseverance was followed Monday morning by an exhausting run on the treadmill with your pastor --- yelling, “Faster!” What if your personal trainer customized a diet plan just for you then prepared a lean and healthy dish for the church fellowship dinner after he served you and others communion? Meet that person --- Pastor AND Trainer, Dave Scott.
Pull-ups are an upper body compound pulling exercise where the body is suspended by extended arms, gripping a fixed bar, then pulled up until the elbows are bent and the head is higher than the hands, utilizing an overhand (pronated) grip. Focus on getting the elbows by your side and activating your shoulder blades rather than focusing your arms doing the work.
Pistols (Assisted) are basically a single-leg squat while holding on and lightly assisting with the upper body. The focus is extreme range of motion (notice how low Kirsten is getting…sit on your heel if possible). Return to a standing position by driving your heel through the ground, keep the spine long, and only pull with your arms as needed.

What if your pastor not only challenged you to climb a mountain he did it with you. Mike Daly shares how his pastor was there with him from idea, through training and all the way to the summit.
If you are still singing the song then you are at the, “5 golden rings” part of this exercise. Be sure to do 5 push-ups every time.

Have you’ve ever felt like your life isn’t totally in order? Perhaps it is way off from being even close to right. Then you may have wondered if true spiritual transformation is even possible. It is possible! And now is the time to work it out with fear and trembling. Don’t depend on yourself to make it happen. Instead learn how to tap into a real power. It is a process that takes perseverance. Are you up for it?
For this part of your holiday training do 3 lunges with each leg. Take a long stride step and focus on lowering “through” the front heel. Your back leg is for balance and the front leg is for work. Lower the torso straight down between the two feet in the long stride position. Focus also on maintaining a long spine. You can stay stationary or walk the lunges around your workout area, alternating for 3 reps with each leg.

The shoulder press can be done with any implement. I have pictures of a thick band and a set of kettlebells. The way I teach this now is different from years ago. I am most concerned now with bone stacking.
