That is the only thing I would be able to do... The first of those stones... It would be difficult too.

The Tire Flip starts in the standing position.

I'm pretty sure I could tip it over on to its side.

Then I'd be done....

We had a tractor tire laying on the floor full of water with the rim seated and filled with pressure. It was about 1000lbs or so and 3 guys couldnt get it off the ground. Typically a 250lb semi tire one guy can handle with a little effort so to flip over an 1100lb tire takes alot of power.

Don't get me wrong, I know these guys are strong... but 1100lbs? I suppose technically that you're not lifting the entire tire off the ground when you flip it but still...

That's a lot of weight, and for several reps?

yer techincally they aint lifting the whole 500kg of the log. That would be crazy lol. But they do lift half of it for (i think, 5-6 reps). So if you think that they probs lift half the tire. thats 250kg, which is like a 250kg bicep curl.
bye bye

lol
