Even though most people seek out used tractor tires for their farming or lawn care equipment, you can actually utilize them for exercise as well. Using used tractor tires can help you get in shape and increase your stamina.
The first step to getting started is to locate some used tractor tires. These tires come in a variety of sizes so get the ones that you will be able to lift and exercise with. You can try calling garages and tire shops to see if they have used tractor tires they are trying to get rid of. Sometimes they will even give them away as long as you can haul them yourself.
Always wear non slip boots or tennis shoes during your work out for extra safety. You may also want to buy or acquire a lifting belt of some sort to help keep your lower back aligned and at low risk for injury.
The tire flip is the most common exercise associated with used tractor tires. To perform this lay down your tire flat, and then in the right squatting position lift the tire up, and flip it onto its other side. Continue you this motion until you grow tired or reach your finish line. Be sure to stop exercising if you begin to feel strain on your back or lower legs to avoid any kind of injuries.
A few other exercises you can try with your tractor tires are the sled drag, which requires you to tie a rope around the tire and pull the rope with both hands while you are facing the tire. This is great for your arm workouts. A keg toss can also be used with a tire and you simply pick the tire up over your head and toss it as far as you can. Hurry up and try out this work out routine now!
