I love watching those strongman competitions. It truly inspires me to see human beings lift such heavy objects. It’s no surprise that watching people flip over cars for exercise would entertain me too. I remember learning in science class that there are cases where mothers have been known to lift cars off of their children because of the rush of adrenaline. It always fascinated me when you think about the capabilities of the human body. When will we reach our full capacity? Will we? I know breaking the four minute mile seemed impossible until Roger Bannister did it in 1954. Then all of a sudden people were doing it left and right. Is it just a matter of preconditioned beliefs that everyone can’t toss cars around like beach balls? Probably not, but I am a firm believer that we have not even come close to reaching our full capabilities in terms of human strength potential. Flipping cars as a form of exercise simple shows in one way how far we have come in strength and gives a glimpse of how far we may go in the future.
Muscles Used When Flipping Cars For Exercise
The beauty of using car flipping as a form of exercise is that you use pretty much every muscle in your body. Since you have to dip down low to grip the bottom of the car you are incorporating low and upper body muscle groups.
Caution When Doing a Car Flipping Exercise
You must watch your low back. Cars can weigh several tons. Only the select few should venture into the exercise of car flipping. For the rest of us, we should stick to dumbbells and bar bells. In no way do I recommend car flipping for the average exercise buff.
