The implementation of the Sandbag in the Turkish Get up is a favorite our crew in conditioning workouts. Using a kettlebell in metcons for Turkish Get up leaves little room for error. But shouldering a bag and coming from a suboptimal grounded position to standing and back down is one of the most beneficial tools you can apply to both novice and advanced athletes.

This kind of gritty workout comes down to the fact that you can keep moving when things get tough. It's just up to you if you want to or not. Having the goal of working towards being confident in using half bodyweight in sandbag Turkish Get up workouts is an excellent goal.

This doesn't mean you need to limit yourself to that goal, but it gives you a goal weight to aspire to. And since you already have that bag weight out for this one, you may as well use it for your carry as well. The goal of completing those walks unbroken should be in your mind as well. It's just up to you to not drop the bag. -
