Hi! I'm new to bodybuilding and have been reading about tire-based exercises. I've seen tires popping up in outdoor boot camps and even at the gym. My brother's a trucker and knows where we can get some old truck parts like huge tires.

I'm planning to get one and set it up on the yard. I read that flipping the tires over can help in toning the posterior-chain muscles such as the back, hamstrings, and glutes. Am I reading the right sources? Is it okay to flip a 500-lb weight for beginners?

Would appreciate if I'll get some tips on tire-based workouts and what type of tires I should use.

I dunno, I always thought of this as more of a 'functional strength' type of exercise, rather than bodybuilding/hypertrophy. I could be wrong, though.

Flipping tires is a good way to rip your bicep. You are lifting with bend arms ballistically.

If you’re using mostly your arms, specifically biceps, you’re doing it wrong.

Tire flipping is more of a conditioning exercise like sled pulling/pushing or car pushing or farmers walks.

It's good. 

They even make these tire flipping machines which are pretty neat because you can add weight as you progress.



This is also cool.

Coach you're are way off base with this from a kinesiology stand point. Lifting a tire with bent arms is dangerous. Show me a video of someone keeping their arms straight lifting a tire. Everyone has bent arms at some point during the lift applying force. Your hips and legs can over power your bicep and rip it.
