Kinda like this


or you could just get a snowsled or a slab and throw some heavy shit on there and pull it around. It would be better, IMO to use ropes or handles and not a harness that way you can work on grip strength

Yeah I just use a rope right now to tow the tire but it's a little rough on the hands. I will probably tie a handle to it or something and call it good.

Get a weight belt, put it on backwards and tie the rope to the back.
Or you could throw the rope over your shoulder and get all callused up, thats always fun too.

Just kidding. Honestly, that would f*cking kill me if tried that routine. I'm proud of myself if I can jog 5 miles and do 50 push-ups.
The whole point of the routine is to kill myself every day. I'm super emo like that

Go to your nearest Tire dealer and ask if they have any used Tractor tires. I got mine for free, I'm sure you can do the same because they actually have to pay to get rid of them otherwise.

They will likely be full of nasty water and will have cow poo all over them. To get rid of the nasty water I just drilled a quarter sized hole in each one and washed/drained them out.

Another poorman innovation that I wanted to add-


I have a couple of big dogs, so I buy those big 50lbs dog food bags... Turns out I have a couple of empty ones. They are pretty damn stout, so I decided to try and make a ground & pound bag out of them.


I haven't done it yet- but my plan is to take a bag and fill it with sand from the river nearby and duct taping the hell out of the bag to keep it from leaking.

Surely this will weigh a lot more than the 50 lbs of dog food that was in it, I'm hoping for about 70 lbs at least. If it's too light, I may just take a second bag, fill it half way full and kind of wedge the first bag inside of the second and tape the hell out of it.


I'll have to add in some fireman carries, pick up/throw downs, and relentless elbow/strikes. Not sure what else I can do with a big bag o sand- ideas appreciated.

Thank you for the laugh, definitely gave me a good one.


Anyway, if that dog food idea works out and is pretty durable try some heavy bag twirls. Essentially deadlifting the bag up and throwing the bag in the air (starting out, 90 degrees, moving to 180 degree throws, and so on). It will really work your core as well as a full body workout, working towards functional strength. I tried looking for a Youtube video trying to show an example, but no such luck. Also could try doing some judo throws (hip toss) with a durable bag (weighted).

Good luck, and wish I had someone to go through some workouts like that.
