Would throwing a shot-put do anything for punching power?

I was thinking of including it in a circuit or interval training or something. What are your thoughts?

    If it was your only form of training then I'd say 'yes, go for it', maybe if you're having trouble learning the movement through the foot-leg-hip-shoulder then, maybe, it might have something to teach you  however there are better things to include because the trajectory is different as is the power demand. A shot, unless it is very light would be far to heavy and the way which you throw would be different.

    i would think so, have seen people put throwing medicine balls in a jab kind of style in circuits so i would be pretty similar
