Are you making this Kettlebell training mistake?

Turkish Get Up

One of the most common mistakes we correct Kettlebell Instructor Courses is incorrect foot placement during the Turkish Get Up.
Placing your foot down as in the top photo creates instability and a weak platform for driving off the back leg.
Get in a lunge. Drop down letting your knee touch the ground as though you are performing a TGU. Place your foot as in bottom photo. Push forward slightly from your back foot and push back slightly from your front foot. Do you feel the connection and stability in your hip? Now try it the other way. Drop to the top of your back foot. Do you feel the change and lack of stability?
