This is my personal best in the barbell getup. My goal was to get one wheel (45 lb. plate) on each side and I did it here.
After doing this I was wondering what the record in this move was and came across this video.
This is James Gardner doing a World Record for the I.A.W.A in the UK. It’s the heaviest recorded lift with 75.5kg or 166.1 lbs.
Not too far off! I also did the added step of getting back down, not just up.
But this is as far as I want to go with this move…at least for now. I’m switching gears and now moving towards the bodyweight bent press that I want to hit.
