The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Tire flip training

    Kind of curious what other people are doing. I recently picked up three tires, one light one really large heavy one, then another heavy one not as large but it is corded so still pretty beefy. I keep just that one at my house others are elsewhere stored till I can get a facility going.

    So I have exercised with the thing twice now, and just curious what other people have been doing, my purpose really is for cardio and general health, as I hate treadmills etc. I also plan to pick up a sledge and implement that after the flips. Could use recommendations on sledge weight.

    First time I flipped it 10 times, rested 5 reps, then 3 more sets of 3.

    Today I just did 8 sets of three, same total number of reps, but of course kept the rest periods short kind of like a high intensity interval training sort of thing.

    What do you guys do, flip it as many times as you can in a given time period? Curious what others do so I can expand what I am doing, and get the most out of my tire.

    I flip as many times as I can in a given time period. I'll warm up with a couple sets of 2-3, then do 1-2 sets of all out reps for time..

    Yeah I should try that then i can focus on speed. I just talked to a distributor found out the tire i am using is 530 lbs. Perfect weight for getting some reps with.
