Tip: Knee-Tap Single-Leg Squat

This is a less awkward and more natural variation of the pistol squat.

Instead of performing a pistol squat, lean your torso slightly forward and hold your non-weight bearing leg behind you instead of in front of you. I call it a single-leg knee tap squat.

The pistol squat exercise isn't bad exercise, but the knee tap squat puts you in a position that better reflects how you perform a squat, as well as how you move in life and sport.
