    Tire flips are not an exercise that should be placed in a program to add spice or “entertrain” kids . I am not an expert on tire flips but when I see poor technique I will call out any guru no matter who it is. The attached photo (1) is an athlete doing a tire flip with dangerous form.

    Not suprisingly, the coach is “strong man” competitor.

    Another beauty!

    I’m pretty sure you could do it better but how much does that matter? What matters most is that when you see one that’s a bit ugly, you make the necessary corrections.

    Found this in the related video section of the same video and I think this takes the cake although by sheer volume the videos by robertdos are atrocious.

    It’s obvious that the athlete in the tire flip video has never learned how to deadlift in the first place. First things first….

    That one goes in the Hall of Shame . . . though he probably markets it as his “secret exercise.”

    The only sport I can see an application of this sort of training is Sailing, Horse Racing, or Equestrian riding. So I guess if you don’t have a horse or sailboat to train on I guess this could be okay.

    The super heavy sled pulls…lmao…there was a triple jumper i used to know who used to do something very simular. He said it made his hip flexors super strong…Lets just say, he never really broke through as a jumper…
