Today I took a mate through a workout using just a tire and rope. here is the workout…
Tire Row, pick-up, Sprint, Drop, Sprint Back, repeat - 3x5
Tire Sprint - 4x1-2 laps of small square (not small, good size)
Tire Shouldering - 2x10 (like sandbag shouldering)
Tire Overhead Toss - 10 reps
Tire Rollout - 2x15
Tire Crunch - 2x50 (feet up on tire)
Tire Prone Bridge - 2x30s (tire on back)
Now, that workout looked good from my view point. So i was wondering, what are your guys views on it? i basically made it up in my head as we went along, so what would you add/change? only using tires…
could this be benefical in GPP or in a sprinters programs?
thanks rav, good list of exercises. i like the bear crawl…
anyone who can answer, where can i fit this type of workout in? i do a 4 day split, Monday is Sprints and Lower-body weights, and Tuesday is Tempo and Upper-body weight, thurs and fri are the same. thanks
I use tires with the university rowing team and our club rowers. Truck tires are used as a sled. I have 3 sizes if tractor tires for flippin’ and seated hand over hand pull with a 75’ tug of war rope. Tractor tire weights are about 200, 300, and over 400 lb.
Our smallest coxn Jo (99 lb.) can flip the small one and the medium one They don’t even look at it as a workout. They call it a “play day”. Tires are great.
yeah they are pretty good. many people underestimates the power of what a tire can offer. i couldnt believe it when i could think of so many things to do with a tire. and they can offer more functional strength.
but im still trying to find, would a tire workout be benefical for a sprinter? if so, what are some good workouts? where can i fit it in?
