Having healthy habits is essential to a better lifestyle and a longer life. Eating right is not the only resource to making changes in one’s life. Diet must be combined with rigorous exercise to create a lifestyle change. With thousands or options, pick something which adds a challenge to a workout. Begin an exercising with tractor tires.
This form of exercise may seem different, but the benefits are unfound. Regardless of the exercise, every muscle will be worked to capacity when using tractor tires.
Exercise #1: Squat
The use of smaller tractor tires is essential for this particular exercise. Consider lawnmower tires instead of an industrial sized tire. This squat will engage the entire body with emphasis on the quadriceps.
Feet shoulder widths apart, bend at the knees as if sitting into a chair. At the bottom of the squat, pause then push toward the standing position. Perform this exercise 12-15 times is sets of three.
Exercise #2: Tractor tires swing
For starters, grab one tractor tire and hang between the legs. The second stage is to squat down. Do not lean backward, but rather your weight is on the balls of the feet. While pushing toward a standing position thrust hips forward and swings tractor tires to shoulder level.
Continue this exercise for 3 sets. Maximum repetitions should be between 12 and 15. Want to intensify the workout? Using two tractor tires will have the heart rate peaked in no time.
Exercise #3: Tractor tires lunge
This exercise requires a bit of coordination. Grab the tire and hold it on either side. Step forward with the left leg and lower toward a lunge. Instead of immediately returning to a standing position, twist the body toward the left and then return to center. Once the twist is completed, raise the body to a standing position.
This particular exercise will need to be performed on both sides of the body. Performing three sets of 10-12 repetitions will be sufficient. Pay close attention to form. The body weight should not be over the knee, but rather the thigh.
Exercise #4: Tractor tire push-over
Now is the time to utilize industrial tractor tires. The tractor tires should be in a horizontal position. Bend the body at the knees as if performing a squat. Place the hands on the edge of the tractor tires and begin the assent to a standing position. The body should be slightly angled toward the tractor tires. Approximately halfway through the push, turn hands toward the tractor tires.
The remainder of the exercise utilizes the arms. Continue to press toward a standing position and push the tractor tires over. Once the tire is again horizontal, perform the exercise again. This exercise should be performed in sets of three with 5-10 repetitions.
