What's a Good Size Tire to Start With?


#1

Hi I've been trolling T-Nation for a long time and just posted in the Beginner's Forum my first thread and now want to post my second.

I'm 147lbs at 5'9" and have made a lot of progress. Right now when I go to the gym I do farmer walks holding 60lb dumbbells. What's a good size tire to try and get my hands on to do some tire flips to build up my strength and endurance?

What do you deadlift?

I usually recommend people start with around a 600 pound tire, but you’re a little on the light side.

hmm I don’t remember I seem to recall 120kilos or about 265lbs.

You might want something lighter than, to start with. Maybe in the 400-500 range.
