How do you preform the Barbell Shoot

I have googled and googled and can not find out how to do this excerise. I found it posted on gym jones I would like to try it but the only thing I could find on it was this picture on their site. Here is the link if you want to see it the and mabey it just has a different name.


http://www.gymjones.com/schedule.php?date=20090430 this page is WFS but if you go to other pages on the site they cuss.

Any help on how to preform this would be much help

Thank You
Jon Wood

Re: How do you preform the Barbell Shoot

I don't know man, for the _exact_ replication of this movement, you'de need a mounted barbell.

or you could just do dumbbell (push) throws in your garden

if you don't mind, of course

Re: How do you preform the Barbell Shoot

I tried it once by just putting the end of the barbell with out the weight against the corner of a wall b/c I didn't have the mounting whitch works but I just dont understand how to preform it.

When I tried it out the one time I thought it kinda resembled a lunge. So that was how I did it I lowered down like a lunge with the barbell on one shoulder and once my knee tapped the ground I just exploded out of it pushing the barbell foward. I would assume that is how to correctly perform it but with nothing coming up on google I'm not sure.

Also that would be a great sub but then I would have to dig it out of 3 ft of snow lol.

Just form the movement. Don't bother preforming it.

Re: How do you preform the Barbell Shoot

I dunno, a good sub could be some kind of...
"lunging one handed wall ball"

sounds terrible enough to give it a shot

Re: How do you preform the Barbell Shoot

Jonathan,

Check out sorinex.com (WFS). The sell the landmines. When you find the landmine, there's a video that shows a guy doing a few exercises with it. I believe that's what they are doing at Gym Jones. Let me know if that helps.

Re: How do you preform the Barbell Shoot

Allen I checked out that site you gave an there was one move a guy did with it that does look alot like the Barbell Shoot.

If that is the Shoot that he is performing in that video then I had it completely wrong I was under the assumption that it was like a lunge but in that video that guy comes no where close to breaking parallel when he goes down. In fact it looks more like a move designed more towards fighting.

I could be wrong on that though.

But at least I know what the mount is called that he is using so mabey I can google landmine exercises an find it.
