More Progressions for Pistols

It’s only a matter of time before we see pistols in The Open, so here’s another guide on how to get them.

The Double Squat/Double Pike drill is an excellent way of showing us any mobility issues we might have in our lower body, and can help develop the range of motion we need.

Placing one foot on the ground behind your heel and lowering yourself under control helps build the necessary strength and control to progress to a single leg squat.

From here, you can place your “support” leg behind your knee/calve as you squat to place even greater load on the working leg.

Remember gymnastic ability comes before weightlifting in the hierarchy of fitness!
