    I don't know if ive seen this before, but i have been flipping tyres in sand for a while now and i must say its the most intense workout ive ever done!

    You guys should give it a try!

    Also, i have some ancient Spartan workout regime photocopies that my cousin gave me from Greece, i should be able to translate the whole thing and maybe post it on here.

    Every time I see a piece of construction equipment I want to take its tires. When you've got a hammer everything is a nail. I wonder if I can get my friend to drive me around and help me pick up a tire this summer.

    Contact JM Tire International, the repair and service all the construction and quarry equipment in the GTA. I keep seeing their trucks on the highway filled with tires from like 300 - 900 lbs... it pains me to not flip them

    I found out that the tyre is a 400 kilo one, from one of the diesel machanics that work out in the mines out here, so i will attempt to flip it today and see how i go.

    Yeah, good luck with flippin that beast.
    I got a free tire today. Truck tire found on the side of road, brand new still has the damn paint stripes on the tread. But I do work out tin the middle of country bumpkin land. It was either I take it and use it or it ends up in a landfill.
    I must admit I never thought I would look at tires with hunger to either beat them senseless or flip them over. But thems the breaks.
