I always just use whatever I can when training like this. I made myself a 100 lb. sandbag a while back and it is a priceless training tool of mine. No matter how many times I train with it, it's still hard to try to control a constantly shifting mass. Just try to keep it moving for at least 3 minutes at a time.

Definitely going to use the barbell complexes at some point - maybe work it in every 2nd week or something.

Several exercises in a row without ever putting the bar down ... usually consists of six to ten exercises ... each exercise is usually done for six reps, explosively, with no rest between exercises.

What would be the best 6 to choose from for overall development?
I'm thinking (in no particular order):

Rear Delt Row - Compound
(Shoulders, Biceps, Lats)

Clean And Press - Compound
(Shoulders, Triceps, Biceps, Lower Back, Traps, Hamstrings, Calves, Abdominals, Shoulders, Glutes)

Barbell Full Squat - Compound
(Quadriceps, Hamstrings, Calves, Glutes)

Upright Barbell Row - Compound
(Traps, Biceps, Shoulders)

Drag Curl - Isolation
(Biceps, Forearms)
or
Reverse BB Curl
(Biceps, Forearms)

end with:

Front Raise And Pullover - Compound
(Chest, Triceps, Shoulders)

After reading this article again (Today). It got me thinking on doing the tire flip. But my question is where would I find those BIG ARSE tires?

I did find this website: http://www.tiretown.com/rearfarm.htm

But what size tire is good? And they ship which is cool because I can't see fitting one of those tires in my expedition. lol

Great question. I was thinking the same thing. If you live in the city, where would you get one? The junkyard, maybe? And how would you get it home or where you train? My apartment's too small I think.

We used to do a modified version of this on the mat flipping the heaviest bag we have end over end. I'm pretty much stuck on the tire thing too though.

I think these kinds of exercises are based in availability and money conservation. If you live near or on a farm where they have an old tire you can use, use it. But any similarly awkward sized, heavy thing will work. I'm big on trying not to spend for something you can have for free. Use a heavy bag as I mentioned, tie 2 together to make it heavier, etc. Use what you have. I like the exercise but I'm not going to spend that kind of cash on tractor tire that's not even going on a tractor. ( if you get my point )

I just filled a backpack with about 75-80 lbs. and have been doing squats and shoulding (floor to should lifting) with it and I'll tell ya, thats the heaviest 70 lbs. I ever moved. For wrestling I'll use a backpack with 15-20 lbs. or hold a couple 35's and practice my shots. Good stuff. Very hard.

I great exercise is filling up a wheelbarrow with a bunch of bricks or cinder blocks and pushing it uphill on a back road or if you want to be savage then fill it up with a coupleh undred pounds and have maybe 3 or 4 people attach some ropes to it, one guy on the handles and push it crosscountry up a good sized foothill. Did that a couple years a go and it was punishing but also the best exercise I'd gotten in awhile.
