These sound like those clapping pullups that that strong fellow was doing in a video someone posted (doing a pullup, releasing the bar to clap when his head was above the bar, and then catching the bar for another rep). He was also doing heavy cleans for reps and heavy backsquats for 20 reps. Impressive!

Anyway, a little different than dynoing overhead but a similar option. It seems like, however, the landing would be different. When going overhead, you can deadpoint to the top bar (i.e., catch the top bar with arms fully extended and body "floating") and not shock load your arms and shoulders as much as catching yourself on the way down. I wonder which one would be "better" and which would be less prone to causing injury.
