Pistol Squat - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Stand up straight with your feet shoulder width away from each other. You should be looking forward, with your chest up, knees and hips slightly bent, and your back straight. Raise one leg off the floor. This is your starting position.

Step 2

While keeping your raised leg straight, squat down by bending your hip and the knee of your squatting leg. Continue until your thigh is almost parallel to the floor.

Step 3

Once you’re at the bottom of your movement, hold your position for a moment then get back to your starting position by reversing your movements. Keep your head and chest up and back straight as you do this.

Step 4

Complete your repetitions in one leg then switch legs and repeat.
