    Tyre flip is a strongman movement, its dynamic and involves hip extension, core to extremity power production, and if done for multiple reps involves intermittent power endurance/production.
    From this perspective anything that involves what is mentioned above is appropriate as your body wont know its not doing a tyre flip, think KB swings,…[Read more]

  • Daniel,

    The schedule I see for the strength elements are Backsquat, Deadlift, Push Press, Bench Press.
    So it depends how you define what is upper/lower/full body.

  • Josh,

    I’m not a coach, but can offer some advice so you can better plan your micro schedule,, as I’ve faced similar hurdles.

    If you need to further break it up: Monday: Benchmark, strength, stamina, Tuesday:…[Read more]

    Brian,

    I know you’re doing a half marathon, so that will dictate your training a month out. This period is highly race specific, so your ‘long run’ will have a large say in your training.
    You want your longest run 3 weeks out before the race, and then you start tapering from there. The week before the race is a de-load.

    For example, for my…[Read more]
