It is just an old tire, two twelve foot lengths of rope, some duct tape, and two 5 inch lengths of radiator hose (for the handles).
To make one follow these steps and look at the pictures.
1) Tie one end of each rope to the tire.
2) Thread the rope through the hoses at the other end.
3) Tie off the rope to make loops for handles (make sure the hoses are in the loops).
4) Duct tape your knots so the ropes stay secure.

It is easy to use just pull it after you while running. Try running both forward and backward with it. For an extra challenge have someone sit in the tire (ride in the “chariot”).

The real challenge is figuring out how you will explain it to your neighbors.

Here it is in use:

  1. Love what you can do with an old tire and some rope. Ingenuity really is the stuff traditional martial arts are made of.
