Tips for Performing StrongMan Tire Flip

  • **Correct Posture and Form**: One common mistake is using the back to lift the tire instead of the legs. This can lead to serious back injury. To avoid this, make sure to bend at your knees and hips, keep your back straight, and use your legs to lift, similar to a deadlift. Your hands should grip the tire underhand and your chest should be pressed against the tire.
  • **Explosive Power**: Tire flipping is not just about strength, but also about power. Use your legs to drive the tire up and push it over with your arms. This should be a quick, explosive movement. Avoid the mistake of trying to lift the tire slowly and methodically.
