Pistol Squat

  • Begin standing on one leg, with the other leg out straight, toes pointing forward. Point your hands forward with a ‘pistol’ hand gesture if desired.
  • Activate your core.
  • Slowly lower your body down into a squat through your food on the ground, leading forward slightly in your torso.
  • As you go deeper do not aggressively “catch the bounce” out of the movement.
  • Once you have achieved a deep squat, use your single leg’s strength to push into the ground with an activated core to then bring yourself back into a standing position on the working leg.
  • Switch leg and repeat.
