So who out there uses triple leg extension to flip these tires rather than bringing the knee up to flip?

Any video/youtube you can recommend watching or anything to help?

glad i could help. so you found a tyre i take it?

also - i know my tyre is kind of light so it could make a difference. maybe if i used a 500 lb one i'd have to use my knees idk. (ps 500 was just a number, i dont even know how much that one weighs)

unless its a real light tire I think you'd be unable to use a triple extension.
heres me with a tire, and ben with a yoke afterwards

If that was a heavier tire and you missed the catch, that would put you in a really bad position. IF you go knee up and it slips or something its already against you as opposed to dropping a few feet to the top of your knee.

Yea, thats what I was thinking. I think Ill be getting a 600# and a 250#.

i know reko - thanks for looking out for me tho. i missed the catch more than once and it always fell onto my chest and forearms. because if my grip slipped i was still moving forward. still not a good thing though. oh well, my tire flipping days are over for now...

I can "one motion" or triple extension flip up to about a 750 lbs tire... but I do not typically do it in contests because it is less efficient and as Reko mentioned, more can go wrong.

If you are doing it for explosiveness training then tripple extensions can be good training. You can also flip very fast while pushing your knee into the tire which is what I prefer. For heavier tires normally you split the movement into two motions and "post" the tire on your leg then dive underneath and drive it over to finish the lift.

Taller guys have an easier time doing a tripple extension because obviously the tire is not as loaded when it is closer to the standing position.

600 tire is perfect weight for conditioning, general flipping, etc. - I am assuming you are getting the 250 for dragging?

Thanks for the advice man! Im not really sure what the 250 will be used for-- maybe both dragging and flipping

I use it, for the most part. If I'm really sucking wind I'll bump it with my knee, but I try to flip "clean" style if that makes any sense. Video from a few days ago...

Here's a good example of triple extension with a tire. Check out Travis Gardner at about the 4:06 mark. I've talked with him about this and he's really worked on "popping" the hips to get the tire up to vertical.

That is some sick speed, thanks!
