The Volcano

The revolutionary 250LB Volcano is a plate-loadable steel tire flip + yoke training implement that can (a) effectively activate the same muscles used in flipping a tractor tire, (b) reduce many of the safety and storage hazards of full-scale tires, and (c) enable adjustable weight distribution for a truly customized workout.

Made in the USA from 3x3” and 2x3” steel tubing, the complete triangular Volcano unit creates a 69” x 48” footprint, doing the potential work of several strongman tires while occupying a fraction of the space. Better still, its versatile design means athletes can quickly switch to using the Volcano for their yoke carries / Zercher carries, front squats, and more.

All six of the Volcano’s weight posts have 9.75” of loadable length (compatible with any standard Oly plates), and all corners of the unit include a 1” rubberized cover to protect both the steel and your flooring through each flip.

Do note that the Volcano ships disassembled and does not come with plates or collars.

Functionality

The Volcano is the only plate-loadable mechanical device that truly simulates the traditional tire flip workout, utilizing all of the same muscle groups required in that movement. Made in the USA from 2x3” and 3x3” steel tubing, the unit includes (6) loadable weight posts and (3) 1.75” diameter crossbars. The height of the bars in the lower tire-flip position is similar to the familiar height of a barbell loaded for an Olympic lift, and the height of the upper bar (45”) makes the Volcano equally functional as a yoke training implement.

2

Versatility

Because the Volcano is plate loadable, athletes can regularly add or remove weight to achieve a desired level of difficulty. Plates can also be loaded unevenly / asymmetrically across the six weight posts, so that, as an example, the first flip of the unit could be relatively easy, the second flip more difficult, and the third flip the most difficult. When used as a yoke, the side-to-side loading can be varied, too, to target the stabilizing core muscles on one side of the body. To work the other side of your core, simply carry the Volcano in the opposite direction. Even team training is possible, as the crossbar length of the Volcano is wide enough to allow two athletes to flip the unit side by side.

3

Safety & Efficiency

Logistically, the Volcano can replace multiple tractor tires, which will not only save loads of gym space, but eliminate some of the pitfalls of traditional tire flip training. This includes being able to use a pronated (overhand) grip on the crossbar, rather than a supinated (underhand) tire grip, which can cause stress and strain on the bicep tendon. The crossbar also allows the movement to begin from a comfortable height off the ground (rather than flat off the pavement), and enables a consistent feel and muscle memory not possible with the ever changing treads and size variances of tires. Safety is taken into account for the user's gym flooring, too, as the Volcano’s corners feature 1” think rubberized edges.

They don't post bad reviews
I have used the product several times and I am not impressed. The "tire flip" has the bar so high off the ground there is no bottom pick-up and you can wrap your hands around the bar (unlike a tire). I am 5'7" and for a yoke this is a low squat for me to pick up. If you drop your shins are running into the front beam and that feels absolutely amazing. I would recommend for the price buying a yoke instead and finding some used tires at a tractor dealership or something.

Versatile home office play gym!
I needed a versatile and stable indoor exercise support for knee rehab, mobility improvement, natural movement exercise and stretching. The Volcano is absolutely perfect for this. There are so many ways to do supported hangs and squat shifting, pushing pulling and lifting, barre exercises and all sorts of exercises that would usually require a trip to a playground or the proper shape/size tree. Having something like this right in my home office is just amazing. It’s pretty, whimsical appealing and rock solid stable. Perfect for anyone who is dealing with the aches and pains of aging or injury rehab, or who wants to add more access to functional movement play indoors. It’s a real missed opportunity to think of this as just a tire flip alternative. I do think it is one of the best multi-purpose pieces of gym equipment on the entire Rogue site, especially for natural movement exercise fans.

I bought this a couple months ago, and love it! Flip it, carry it, lift it. Conditioning or strength. It seems to be indestructible!

Amazing
Load this up anyway you want to make the workout as easy or hard as you want, trains full body with ease and at about 100lb per side makes it light enough for a beginner. If planning on loading it up with weights I recommend getting axle collars because the posts are speciality size at 1.9”
