Exercises With Tires
Next time you have a flat tire, keep it! Amen Iseghohi, founder of Phoenix-based amenZone Fitness Training, helps people stay in shape by simply using old car tires for a back-to-the-basics approach to exercise, dubbed "Primal Fitness." This former junior professional rugby player shares five of his favorite full-body exercises, starting with a warm-up you can do at home with an old tire.

Tire triceps dip
Stand with your back facing the tire. Reach behind and place your palms on the tire, shoulder-width apart, so your fingers curl over the front edge. Lower yourself until you barely touch the ground, then lift your body using your arm strength. Try crossing your ankles for a more intense triceps workout or lifting one leg during each dip to simultaneously work your leg muscles.
Standard: 12 reps
Extreme: 20 reps
