Can’t do Pistol Squats? Neither Can I.

Many thanks go to the good people at Breaking Muscle and Chris Garay for putting together this progressive training program to teach individuals how to achieve a proper pistol squat. The program takes you through a series of ten different movements beginning with a basic air squat and ending with unassisted pistols. Be patient with this program and honest with yourself. Only progress to the next movement when you have mastered the one before it.

Still in the early stages of the progression myself, I am incorporating these movements into my warm-ups before every workout. I’m going to stick with this and hopefully very soon I will be able to execute my first pistols! I’ll keep you posted on my progress!
