• With the tire lying on its side, stand close (as in a deadlift) with your arms outside your legs and grab the underside of the tire. Lean into it so your chest is against it and your weight is on the balls of your feet.
• Explosively lift the tire using your hips and chest. The movement is like a power clean. When the tire clears your waist, raise one knee (either one) to help you boost it upright (on its treads).
• Switch to an overhand grip and push hard through the tire. If you can't move it forward, push away and jump back so it doesn't drop on your feet. Now, go work on your deadlift (it's the best for flip strength).
