    The Getup - Owning The Weight

    Spend at least 60 seconds on each side, being very deliberate at every phase of the getup. Once you get to that point, keep practicing until it becomes easy. This is one of the safest ways to determine if you own the weight and are ready to move up to the next bell size.

It seems like some programs might look like prerequisites, others more like electives, and others more like a graduate thesis.
