In the world of fitness, there are a few exercises which count as almost being an entire workout in themselves. One of the finest exercises in this category is the Turkish get-up. A versatile set of moves, the Turkish get-up helps to promote better mind-muscle connection, apart from working on your strength and balance.
In this engrossing step-by-step guide, writer Pulasta Dhar takes you through the exercise, and gives tips on how to do it in the correct form. As Dhar writes, “The exercise involves many individual movements, including the lunge, the raised arm in an isometric hold, the hip bridge, the cross-body movement of employing your left hand and right leg to lift.” As you can tell, this is an exercise you need to master right away!
In the world of sports tracking smart watches, nothing comes close to the usefulness and ruggedness of the Garmin Forerunner line. Recently, we saw the company launch the smaller and more compact Forerunner 265S, with a brand new AMOLED display.
In this in-depth review, writer Shrenik Avlani puts the watch through its paces to bring you a clear-eyed view of the pros and the cons of this cool new smart watch. Read the review here.
