    Corey have you got any pics up on this site mate? You must be a big boy throwing these sort of weight around after not training consistently?

    The box I used was a low box, about 4 inches below parallel for my height, I had good power, it really help hammer my glutes and hammies

    im not quite sure about the exact weight of the tire but id put it close to the 500 pound or so range. It has a diameter of about 5 ft, when laying on the ground its about 2 ft high the center diameter is prob about 2ft and the rubber in nearly 2 inches thick on the insides, so im guessing 500 pounds, its a good tire, i wears you the **** out after a while, plus we swing a 20 pound sledge

    That sounds about right for the weight. Ive got a 6ft by 3.5ft tire thats about 750 and a 1.5ft x 4.5 ft thats about 300. I havent even tried to move the big one in a while. The last time I did I had a 475x2 lb DL. I havent DLed in a long time and Im not eve sure if I could flip it more than once. I dont know how well squatting correlates to flipping. Ive heard that you should be able to1RM flip a tire that is double your DL weight, which sounds about right to me. When I could, I could flip it 3-4 times in about 3 minutes. How does that equation work out for you?

    that sounds pretty good, if i had to guestimate my DL is around 500 or so and if that tire is that weight i can flip it in sets of 5 with about amin rest between each for 60 total reps,

    Squatting and DL carry over to the tire flip but ive noticed its another animal all in of itself, like in the deadlift and squat u have to push/pull the weight straight up, and in some cases with the DL u almost pull back on the weight, in the tire flip u have another area of leverage and u have to push the tire up at an angle which u have to use good technique and use more muscles. and in some odd way i find that the tire flip helps my DL more than the DL helps my tire flip, as ive gotten better at teh tire flip ive gotten better at my DL

    my reasoning is that because ive found my weak point in my DL is my mid back thorasic extenders are weak, but the tire flip helps bring that up, and even juat after that first session of tire flipping i had more strength in that area when i went back to DL

    so im def keeping both in my routine to maximaize strength, ive noticed it has help fortify weaknesses in my midback and previosu injuries in my lower back to where i dont feel them as much as i used to when DL, so im going to keep both in my routine... for life

    This is my first time checking in here. I didn't realize you were this strong man. I noticed the 6 sets of squats w/405...holy s***!!! Also, I see that you do both low bar, and oly squats. Interesting. It's always cool to see everyone's different training styles.
