The Benefits of Tire Training
Over the last couple of years, you’ve probably seen truck or tractor tires popping up in a ton of health clubs, gyms, boot camps, races, etc..The reason is pretty simple, tire flipping is a fun and different total-body workout. Great for building muscle and getting your cardio work in at the same time – Win-Win!
Tire Flipping is also a great way to work the posterior muscles, like your hamstrings, glutes, and back. Also, this a terrific exercise for your core muscles. This can be especially beneficial for those of us who sit at a desk or log a ton of miles in our cars.
Unfortunately, tire flipping with a truck or tractor tire has some major down-sides as well. They are loud, damage floors, mark-up walls, and are dangerous especially in a fitness center. Additionally, traditional tire flipping requires a ton of space in the gym. Even if you have a large turfed area, do you really want to waste 50 yards or more on one exerciser and disrupt the other members?
