    big tires to flip

    where can I get some big tires to flip?

    What size tire should I get? Where should I get it? I want one that I can flip about twice, is that a good for starting? Or should I go for one I can flip more?

    I deadlift 325 if that helps.

    Just go to a used tire yard and they'll give you one for free (it costs them to dispose of them). I'd start with a tire you can flip explosively for several reps as its very easy to strain the biceps. I see a lot of people, when they lift the tire for the first time, simply deadlifting it. Drive into the tire w/your whole body and it'll come up much easier (and less stress on the biceps).

    You can usually find one at a dump or junk yard. Get one that comes up to your knee. Start with 500-600 lbs. If you want to add weight, get some small tires and put them inside the large one.

    Just another bit of advice about lifting them. Although I have never lifted a tire people who do lift them say to put your chest on the tire and drive it in to the tire to lift it. So I imagine you get your hands into position at the base and then press your chest against the upper portion, and then you are ready to drive into the lift. That seems like it would take out the bicep isolation and would put your whole body into the lift.

    Get several sizes. Get one you can flip easily. That will be good to warm up with and do reps for time etc. Get one that is very challenging. This one should be hard to lift 3 reps in a row. Then get one you're gonna have to work up to.

    This will allow you to get stronger on the tires, and if people of different levels of strength come to work out there will be a challenge for everyone.

    Talking

    not sure where you are but I live in central Illinois and all I did was looked in the yello pages for a used / recycling tire company and it was like a tire flippers heaven out there . All sizes and whats cool is they even let me come and exchange them when they get to light so they are very cool . What I do when flipping tires is always get a good grip , since I am shorter I use an outside the legs grip and drive it up till I can get my knee under it for a quick kick-up for the flip. But the first tire I had was a 900# tire and I ended up getting a lighter tire to get use to , I basically had to leave my ego at the door till I got use to movement .

    To make mine heavier (450 lbs. as is.) I put 50 or 25 lbs. plates in the rim and lift it to upright then put it back down again so the plates don't roll or bounce out.

    start with one that you can do many reps with, because it is very easy to injure a bicep muscle on tyre flip.
