Take Strength and Balance Seriously With One-Legged Squats

The pistol squat is a one-legged movement that provides all of the muscle-building benefits of a regular squat while upsetting balance. It’s super tough, but it has a lot of bragging rights.

If you can’t do a single pistol squat yet, you’re not alone. Luckily, A Shot of Adrenaline has a detailed guide to building the muscles and skills required to complete the movement. First, there are regular squats without weights; then you should take the position of a partial squat, shifting the weight on one leg.

From there, you can do partial reps (sitting in a chair) and move on to squat options in which you use a door frame or raised surface for help. Check out the full progress and workout program to put it into practice at the link below.
