If you are a bit more serious into sports in terms of being a participant, you can’t beat flipping tractor tyres for a great overall workout.
You will be working everything in this type of workout.
Your legs, your stomach, your back, your hamstrings, thighs, arms and shoulders will all go through a massive amount of work when you go through this process.
Down the gym for example, we now have a dedicated area outside purely for this activity.
The same area is also used for sprints, for carrying heavy sandbags, for using a sledghammer on to tyres, and the latest addition is the famous “farmers walk” with the rubber-cased 125 pound blocks!!
All of these movements will give pure explosive power to your body-vital to perform at a high level in sports.
The great thing about all of this is that many of the participants are not sportsmen or sportswomen at all, they are normal everyday people who want that just little bit different from their workouts!!! The results they are getting are simply sensational, and although these exercises are not for the beginner, they are tremendously enjoyable and a great addition to more traditional methods!
Every exercise has an “energy cost”. By this i mean if you went for a gentle walk, then this would not have much of an exercise cost at all.
Going for a run would have much more of an exercise cost, a set of high-intensity sprints would be much more, and the tyre flipping would be right up there too.
You can see that the higher intensity of exercise definitely burns a lot more calories, a lot more fat and gets you into tremendously better shape than you ever previously thought!!Training is changing all the time, make the most of your efforts and don’t settle for second-best!!!
