Strongman Training for Athletes – The Correct Tire Flipping Technique
Here is the video that I promised for this previous post located here:
It is not hard to incorporate strongman training techniques in your athletes programs, but you have to make sure the technique is right.
Otherwise, the benefit will not outweigh the risks.
– Do not deadlift the tire
– Keep arms straight
– Hips back
– Drive through the tire
– Do not deadlift the tire
If you are TOO CLOSE TO THE TIRE when flipping (i.e. deadlifting the tire) when you STAND UP you are in a bad spot and have to wrestle with the tire with your biceps. Also, a more athletic position starts with your hips back (in about a 45deg angle) and driving forward.
The video also demonstrates a quick way to modify a tire to make it easier for younger athletes or for tires with bad tread and low profiles.

Does driving through with the knee place the hip flexors in a dangerous position?
If the athlete is tired and doesn’t finish driving through the tire, the tire might come back down in the leg.

Without a doubt, there are risks. I would recommend that the quality of the movement should be the highest priority.
For athletes, if fatigue is affecting the movement, then it is time to rest.
With that being said, for strongman competitors, the knee is used to actually brace the tire as hand positioning is adjusted for the 2nd push.

Tijdens de herfstperiode plus voorjaar en de avonden van de zomers is het aangeraden om de palm met water te sproeien. Dit verwijdert stofdeeltjes van de bladeren waardoor ze
beter licht kunnen oppakken en eveneens mooier worden.
