“Tire Battling” w/ Sincere Hogan & Rick Daman @ The Underground Strength Gym

Buffer

Recently, my man Zach Even-Esh of http://budurl.com/uscoach, explained the benefits of getting your “tire battle” on, when training with a partner or team.

This is one of the many ways you can add variety to your training, have some fun, and get hella strong. Also, by switching your feet though out the drill, you can also improve on your timing, stability, footwork, and explosiveness.

Take a look at the footage, and don’t forget to leave a comment below. Let me know what you think, and also share how you rock your workouts with tire training.

This is ideal for not only athletes training for particular sports (i.e. football, MMA, b-ball & more), but it’s great for the everyday warrior dealing with the competition of “life.”

If you don’t have access to a big tractor tire, you can also use a large medicine ball or stability ball. Although, neither of these would add the same amount of resistance as a big tire; don’t sweat it!

You can get creative and simultaneously perform a isometric hold (i.e. you push with you arms extended, and hold the ball near your partner’s chest, while they push and hold with their hands pulled back, near their ribs.).

When training like a warrior, not having the “so-called” ideal equipment is never an issue. Just about anything we can get our hands (and sometime feet) on, is ideal for how we training. The most important training tool is your “creativity.”

Now, let’s get it!
