"300" strength/endurance test question

I recently saw the movie "300" and was impressed with the fitness of the actors in the movie. Well, it turns out that they put themselves through a hellish workout program to give them"functional strength" which emphasizes full body exercises and body weight exercises as opposed to muscle isolation exercises.

 

I have been a devotee of body weight exercises for several years now and cxan attest to the results. But as I was perusing the articles on this website:

I was stumped to figure out what a "floor wiper".

 

It says that it is done while holding 135 lbs. I just can't figure out how it is done.

 

Any Help?

 

By the way, the website for this gym is quite inspiring.
