Are you suggesting that you invented throwing?
I was experimenting, and I think I invented a new workout (or at least independently discovered it... ). I call it the barbell throw. It's simple enough, use a gymnastics barbell, and launch it from your chest as far as you can. I would usually clean it (deadlift dynamically), and throw. Just make sure it's not going to hit anything... lol, and maybe do this outside in a big stretch of grass, or other soft ground.
Honestly sounds unnecessarily dangerous ? A push-press is essentially the same thing but with a bigger weight and without the bar leaving your hands. The force applied in both should be similar, only with a lighter bar the gravitational force is lower than with a heavier weight and the result is velocity at the end of the ROM.
Edit: Just read your post again and think I misunderstood Thought you were throwing it straight up and then catching it again. Still seems like the bar would be damaged though?
