Well, things are coming along here with a bit over 3 weeks into Crossfit. Went out today and constructed a Wall Ball (22lbs) out of a cheap-o basketball and sand and also mounted a door mount pull-up/chin-up bar in my apt. and brought my weighted vest home.

I also found that right on the back side of my apt. complex there is an abandoned roadway closed off to traffic that is almost exactly 400m long. Now I just need to get a small tire and old length of 2 1/2" Firehose to rig a weighted hose pull and maybe get a big truck/tractor tire for tire wo's...

Hello Brian,

For the tractor tire, drive to the nearest farming community and speak with your friendly John Deere Dealer. Or better yet, post on craigslist that you are looking for one. Tell them you will pick up. Rent a flatbed pickup from home depot if you have to.

Disposal of tractor tires is so expensive that people will be begging you to take them off your hands.

Seeing as how your already a firefighter, Id be willing to bet getting some old hose wouldnt be to hard for you, but you could also do what Im planning.

Get yourself a second tire, drill an eye hook into it, and attach a rope, bingo, easy made sled. From there you can also place some good plywood either inside or on top, add weight as you see fit. Now you can always use it as a regular sled (that can be used on concrete and grass), which is a great tool by itself, and with enough weight, you can also mimik pulling a hose.
