Pistol Squats, Beginner To Badass!
Our friend Dan demonstrates the proper progression of a Pistol Squat, from the most regressed level, to his badass double-racked kettlebell version!
The pistol squat is a challenging movement that requires a high degree of ankle, knee, and hip mobility, core stabilization, and unilateral leg strength. Mastering the pistol squat takes proper progression and practice.
Many muscular and movement imbalances go unnoticed during bilateral exercises due to the body's natural tendency to compensate. Those compensatory behaviors often lead to overuse injury, poor and inefficiant movement patterns, and muscle weaknesses. Adding unilateral movement to one's program will expose weaknesses that need to be addressed.
