Olympic Biathlete and professional 3-Gunner Lanny Barnes, better known under moniker Lanny Oakley, demonstrates some impressive balancing skills while on the range.

Reminding Instagram viewers not to try this at home, Barnes carefully balances on a weighted ball while pinging targets with her rifle. Barnes said she was introduced to the weighted ball during her training for Olympic biathlons and that the idea carried over into shooting.

“I do this to help improve my shooting, balance and focus,” she said on Instagram before cautioning, “I do not however recommend this as a drill because it is extremely dangerous. There are much safer ways of improving those things and your shooting.”
