Prisoner Get-Ups

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Total body


Step 1: Start by kneeling on the ground with your knees hip-width apart and your hands behind your head.


Step 2: Slowly stand up, leg at a time. Squeeze your abs and glutes while standing up.


Step 3: Squeeze your abs and glutes while returning to the starting position, one leg at a time. That is one rep.


Modification (beginner): Use hands  to get up to standing position.

Modification (advanced): Start by lying on your back with your hands behind your head, elbows out. Keeping hands in place, sit up, swing your legs behind you, and then bring yourself to a kneel position. Continue with steps mentioned above.
