View Full Version : What is this called?

There was a small class of mma fighters at my gym that where doing this barbell exercise I've never seen / heard of. In the starting position the barbell rests on your shoulders (same as for squat) and your kneeling. You jump from your knees and end on your feet in a squatting position.
It looked hard but I've never seen anything like it.

It was probably something specific they do to help with power off the ground so they can stand up when someone is on top of them.

i've seen a video demo of that somewhere. i think it was over at t nation in the 'exercises you've never tried'.

sounds like it might benefit sprawling speed and power.
