    Default Can someone rate this TGU variation please?

    Hi Gang,

    was searching youtube for the TGU (as I'm gonna be doing them when my bell arrives) and saw this variation.

    So, as I'm a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Practitioner it's of particular interest to me!

    Thing is, what do you guys think of it, formwise, safety wise and of course effectiveness wise?!

    I humbly ask for your wisdom!

    Cheers gang,

    Al

    About 4 years ago, I believe everyone was doing this style. It's been updated since.

    I used to teach this to people who had trouble getting TGU done, not anymore.
    It's easier than current RKC recommended one.

    I think that having multiple variations of an exercise available is a good thing. I think this is an excellent variation that woks things from angles that the more usual variations miss.

    Speaking of the "standard issue" TGU....is there a GOOD video out there showing the latest most accepted TGU? It seems like this has been in quite the debate lately, and I don't know that I've seen the One True Method.

    (god help me if this turns into another TGU debate thread)

    Since I'm still a beginner still building core strength- I use this version while training (w/lighter bell) to do the current 'bridge' style. I figure getting some full 'get up' reps can't hurt.
