The Pistol Squat Checklist

Feb 19, 2020 by

The pistol squat is a type of single-leg squat that allows you to train smaller muscles that are in charge of balance. When performing any outdoor sports where the ground is uneven, single-leg squats can help you train for that environment.

The pistol squat is a variation that requires significant balance, joint stability, muscle activation, and body control. You need to keep one leg straight while bending your other leg to lower your body as close to the ground as possible.

To learn how to do this with the correct form and training, watch the video below!

After this routine, your quads will probably feel a bit sore. Treat your quadriceps with the Thumper Mini Pro to help speed up recovery!
