This is my tire. There are many like it, but this one is mine.My tire is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.My tire, without me, is useless. Without my tire, I am useless.
Yes I’m talking about the big one with the Chihuahua on top of it. Yeah, maybe I’m being a little melodramatic about my feelings for this tire but this has got to be one of the greatest workout accessories ever.
The best thing about this tire is that I got it for free. My wife came home one day and said, “hey honey my friend has a tire for you so let’s go pick it up.” At the time I was thinking, a free tire, surely it must be of the smaller variety.
When I first laid eyes on it I was like, oh shit that thing is huge! I was soon humbled because there was no way I was getting it into the back of my truck without the help of my wife who, by the way, is pretty damn strong.
Yeah. She works out.
Seriously, if you can find a large tire to a tractor or truck you have found one of the best workout tools ever. You can flip it, roll it, jump on it, jump in and out of it, push it, pull it, beat it, just to name a few.
I’m also considering a way to add attachments so I can convert to a sled pull, yoke carry and yes, even an awesome swing.
If you do find a good tire make sure you store it under a covered area as it will collect gallons of rainwater if left out in the open which can be nearly impossible to empty afterwards and can also become a breeding ground for swarms of mosquitos.
Now go find yourself a tire and get pumped like the Michelin Man!
