Pistol Squat

  1. Stand with your feet shoulders’ width apart, hands resting on your hips.
  2. Extend your left leg out straight and off the ground. Balancing your weight on your right leg, keeping tension in your lower abdominal, bend your right knee and lower yourself down into a one-legged squat. The lower you are able to comfortably squat while keeping your balance, the more effective the workout.
  3. Left leg still extended out in front of you, raise yourself back up into your starting position.
  4. Complete 5 reps on your left leg, then switch to your right leg for 5 more reps.
