The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    NEWSLETTER ARTICLE - 2 Back Yard Tools for a Better Workout

    by Mike Scialabba

    Let's face it, sometimes the gym just sucks, and sometimes it's simply too nice outside to surround yourself with mirrors and other sweaty dudes. So here's a couple options on how to get your train on in your back yard for 20 bucks or less.

    Find someone with a truck and head to your local tire dealer. Find out where they take or store old junk tractor tires and go get one! They should be free and if they try to charge you, go somewhere else. Remember, you're getting rid of their trash.

    When choosing your tire, don't get crazy. You're not Mariusz Pudzianowski, so don't drool over the big ones. Find a tire with good tread and thick knobs that protrude out to the sides. Make sure it's a thick tire, as in when it lays on its side, it's stands at or above your knees. Then, grab the inside well, and make sure you can at least budge the tire with a hard pull as if you were trying to drag it with one hand. This is a descent measurement tool for determining whether you'll be able to flip the tire with descent speed and utilize it for other exercises.

    Now that you've found your tire, get that sucker home. Next hit your local pawn shop and find a good used sledge hammer. Start with a 10lb or 12lb head with a clean handle and make sure it's not faulty at the joint. Don't pay more than 15-20 dollars for your hammer, unless you're buying it new at a hardware store, which then it will be around 40 - 60 bucks.

    That's all you need to get started. Now, take some time and learn these few things:

    1) Explosive Tire Flip
    2) Tire Drag with tow straps
    3) Tire Jumps
    4) Diagonal Sledgehammer swing
    5) Overhead Sledgehammer swing
    6) Single Arm Sledgehammer swing (advanced)

    Now get creative with a few conditioning circuits and your as good as 8 miles on a treadmill and 15 minutes in a sauna, minus the naked fat guy!
