Flip away body fat !!!


Move your body as a single unit

Tyre flips are a highly effective and intense full-body movement, making them one of the best session “finishers” to improve cardio conditioning and accelerate fat loss.

Need to know
“Flips develop your posterior chain as well as enhancing leg drive, flexibility, endurance and explosive strength, all while teaching you to lower your body then explode up, something that has many real-life benefits,”
says two-time British natural strongman champion Jack Lovett.

 

Build explosive drive and power

All flips require an explosive lowerbody drive that extends up through the hands into triple extension, so they’re great for power and fat-loss aims, as well as combat athletes.

Need to know
“Use a safe lifting position and suitable load, and the tyre should be 20-22in [50-56cm] thick,”
says Lovett (spartan performance.co.uk).
“Thinner tyres force a sumo deadlift lifting position, aka the ‘biceps-tearing’ position. If your gym doesn’t have tyres, do barbell power cleans.”

 

Usea tyre that tests you

Even if you’re new to tyre flipping, you don’t want to start too light with tiny tyres because it won’t provide enough of a stimulus to lead to fat loss or explosive power.

Need to know
“Here’s a secret: tyre flipping isn’t that hard,”
says Lovett.
“You never lift the total weight and I see many athletes who struggle to squat twice their bodyweight flipping tyres three times their weight. It needs to be heavy enough so you can be aggressive and explosive.”
