I can honestly tell you that one of the best workouts that I have ever had involved a sledgehammer and an old truck tire. I don’t know if you are like me or not, but when I am in the training mindset I like to blow off steam and workout with an attitude of fury! I’m the first one to say that there is not quite anything like throwing weight around in the gym or slinging a kettlebell around, but swinging a sledgehammer hard enough to hit a tire the way Tiger Woods would smash a golf ball is pretty close.
The Sledgehammer: The cool thing about fitness is that you can get truly creative about getting a hard-hitting workout when you put your mind to it. If you have the resources and the imagination your own personal “dungeon” of fat destruction can be created in minutes without the waste of money on fuel and monthly dues for a gym membership! To start, you can simply take a stroll into your dad’s garage and take a look around. Look for a sledgehammer and if you don’t have stakes to drive into the ground then try to get your hands on an old truck or tractor tire with a somewhat smooth outer surface. Now all you have to do is stand to one side of the tire and swing away! This is one challenging core muscle exercise. The tire should recoil the sledgehammer with every fierce blow. Try to knock the tire to Mars. Change positions an angles to target different areas of your body.
The Tire: When you are done hammering on the tire pick it up and throw it like a discuss across the yard! Alternate sides. Throw from your left and then throw it from your right side. Just make sure there are no wire sticking out from it. Don’t be stupid, use common sense. All in all, work hard and have fun.
