    Some strongman questions...

    I can easily get a tire somewhere in the 350-400 pound range, but since my house is currently on the market, I can't have it here, not even in the garage. My dad says it would just get in the way. Does anyone here have a tire that they don't keep at home? If so, do you know of any good places to keep it? Any county fields/facilities? I live in Westchester county, NY... just wondering what anyone else does. Someone I know who goes to Manhattanville says that there are some tires that they used to use for athletic team training, but don't anymore, yet still have the tires. Anyone else know anything about this?

    Also, I know there's a search engine via the stickies for powerlifting gyms in the area, but anyone know of strongman gyms anywhere from Westchester county up to Stamford, CT? Yes, I have tried searching the internet and the forums people. I am considering doing some strongman training, as I may enter a contest some day soon.

    In my search, I did come across this website, http://www.theweakgeteaten.com/Resources/gym.htm#list. I checked it out, but it doesn't have anything in New York.

    Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Storage units are about the only reasonable place you'll find. You'll have to pay, and that might suck, but no one's going to willingly keep a tire and not charge you some kind of money (be it a team fee, membership fee, storage fee, whatever).

    Sorry this ain't much help -- I don't live in NY, but as far as I know, storage units are about it.

    Not sure of your area, but one thing to look into is a county/borough compost yard. It's the place that the road crews take all of the storm debris/landslide rocks/mower clippings/etc to dump. Generally they're open to the residents of that area to use. I've gotten all of my stones from our area one and have seen a pile of old earth mover tires up there (left by the road crew I assume). If you have one in your area it would work as a free site. Only caution is that once in a blue moon they do clean out the sites. Not very often (havn't cleaned ours in 6+years), but it is a posibillity.

    Good luck!

    do you have any friends/relatives who are interested in training with tires? they might would let you store/use it at their homes.

    Either you pay to keep it somewhere or you risk it getting burnt. I used to keep a smalish tractor tyre at an iso area not too far from my house, i was using it for arm over arm, bunch of rocks around so id put them on it for weight. I was hiding it in some bushes, but sure enough, eventually some idiots managed to burn it.
