Tire flipping requires total–body engagement. It is excellent for building muscle, developing strength, and for harnessing your body’s raw power. Traditional workout machines still support your movement while these tires flips will require a whole new strength from your glutes and quads.
Every flip of the tire will task your muscles differently because your body will need to compensate for tiny changes in your grip and foot placement every single time. Done with good form, these workouts will fire up your lower body, engage your lats and arms, and have you sweating in minutes!
Here are some exercises to get you started:
Exercise 1: Single Tire Flip
Exercise 2: Tire Flip, Jump Up
Exercise 3: Tire Tug, Jump In, Jump Out

Test Your Explosion with Plyometric Jumps
When it comes to merging strength training with cardio, Plyometric Jumps are a solid choice. Each jump is an explosion of energy and each landing requires stable, controlled movement. Think of how much energy it takes to lift your body off the ground and to absorb the impact as you land. A simple jump challenges the pull of your weight and the pull of gravity. Now imagine taking that to new heights.
Training your body with plyometrics is sure to push the boundaries of what your muscles are used to!
Give some of these power-packed workouts a try:
Exercise 1: Jump Forward, Step Off Back
Exercise 2: Jump Lateral On, Jump Lateral Off
