To hit a solid pistol squat, you need mobility, strength, and balance. Use this exercise regression to work your way up to a full pistol. As with all pistol variations, keep these cues in mind:
- Focus on a spot on the floor and extend one leg in front of you.
- Sit back in your heel as you push your hips back and drive your knee out.
- Focus on pushing through the heel, big toe, and pinky toe as you extend your knee and hips.
