3/10 Tire Flips

This is an event I actually have some level of experience with, but it has been about 2 years since I messed with the tire much.

Our big tire is 1020 pounds (according to the chart in this article... and the tire in the comp is supposed to be 850, so if these measurements are accurate, I feel good.

I did a couple sets of 3 to get a feel for things and then did a timed set of 6, as I will have to do 2 sets of 3 flips in the comp interspersed by keg loading. I did 6 flips in just over 32 seconds which seems pretty fast I guess.

After that I set up a trash can with 7 plates (315 pounds) in it to simulate the 350 pound keg that I have to put over a 48" bar. The medley at Cali's Strongest Man will be Keg, Tire Flip x3, Keg, Tire Flip x3, Keg. So I did that and was pretty gassed out. I think the awkwardness of the trash can slowed me down a bit more than the keg will.
