The Pistol Squat, one-legged or single leg squat is a textbook strength, balance, coordination, and mobility exercise that attracts the eyes of fitness enthusiasts.
Pistol squats may seem really hard or outright impossible to you.
But in reality, anyone can learn how to perform pistol squats and today I will show the exact steps that my wife used.
Here’s a video of her doing pistol squats in sandals: (and celebrating it!)
Granted, it’s not perfect, but bear in mind that she had:
- NO previous training (never did any kind of squat before).
- No sports background at all.
- Knee pain from a previous accident and knee surgery.
Strengthening the legs and knees helped my wife eliminate her knee pain and it will help you reduce yours in any kind of knee flexion.
