414 Tire Flips With 400lb Tire For Charity

On a dare, I posted on Facebook that however many “LIKES” a status update received in 60 minutes, I would do 2 tire flips with a 400lb tire. The post received 207 Likes in 60 minutes, so I had to do 414 flips.
Various Facebook fans around the world pledged that they would donate money to their favorite charity for each flip I completed. Knowing that my traps, forearms and lower back were about to be fried, I suited up with RockTape to help support the movements of my muscles and decrease inflammation. I started off with a few sets of 20, but as I reach about 200 flips, my sets decreased to 14 or 15. After passing 260 and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, I increased my sets to 30-35.
Halfway through the video I pulled down the blinds in the gym, that’s why it looks darker. I also put on a sweatshirt half way through because my shoulders were giving me some pain from all the pressure of the tire.
Since I was in a Crossfit gym though. I was obliged to take my shirt off…I completed this after 3 hours and 7 minutes.

My post recovery meal was 2 burritos, 2 tacos, and 2 crispy burritos from Taco Time,  plus 1/4 gallon of milk: my standard meal.

This experiment was a success, and I am going to try a variation of it every month. I may challenge my readers to get involved as well by doing the experiments along with me and reporting their results. Would you participate? Let me know in the comments.
