how to do a pistol squat


Exercise 1 – Hold onto a suspension trainer, lift one leg off the ground and balance it at 90 degrees. Slowly squat down onto the opposite leg and pull yourself back up.

Exercise 2 – Sit up and down onto an exercise step with one leg constantly lifted off the ground.

Exercise 3 – Repeat step 2 whilst holding a small weight, this will help bring extra strength to the leg muscles.

Exercise 4 – Once you are confident with exercises 1 – 3, have a go at a full one legged pistol squat. Pull one leg out in front of you at 90 degrees (or as straight as you can, depending on your flexibility), and squat down on the opposite leg.
