My friend and I occasionally do partnered KB juggling where we toss it back and forth, but this is a whole new level.

The throwing would not be so bad. The catching seems like the hard part.

Yes but there IS something to ballistics load training. Check out this video at the :34 second mark. It's something that Jay Schroeder has his people do.

I have seen a picture of a special machine he has where the middle of the bar is more like a 1' flat surface so you can palm it flat to push and catch.

on edit: The machine I was talking about can be seen at the :53 second mark in the video at the bottom of the page here: http://ultrafitevosport.com/
