😬 Pistol Squat progression training😬🔫 Pistol squats are a great Way improving your mobility, balance, strenght and fexibility.
But before going into a full pistol squat a couple Of progression steps are needed. Or Else you Will most likely Fall flat like I did a couple Of months. I was certain that I could do it just like that. Just because I have strenght dosn't mean I have the necessary mobility or balance.
Pistol squat progression requires making sure you can get into a deep squat, bringing your butt close to your heels while keeping a straight back (Work on that until you are ready to move on to the next step). 🔹 1. Pistol squat, to a Box/bench/chair: Pistol Down to a Box/bench/chair. Start with a tall one and gradually progress lower. 🔹 2. Pistol squat, grab on to a pole: while Holding on to a pole, perform a slow, controlled pistol negative. Bring the other leg in at the bottom, and stand up on two legs.
There are several more pistol squat progression steps if necessary. These two worked for me. I did the two until I worked on My balance and mobility to a degree where I felt comfortable enough to try without the pole. My full pistols are not perfect - But I'll Get there 💪🏾😅
