Lately I've been shifting a lot of my fitness towards kettlebells, simply because they're a lot more practical for the boat. The Turkish get up (or "get up") is arguabbly one of the most effective functional movements out there you can do, and it's perfect to do with a kettlebell. It looks deceptively simple, but even if you have a lightweight kettlebell, a dumbell, or even a cloth bucket with sand in it, you can make this work.
