Movement of the Week // Pistol Progressions
This week on the <<>> BLOG <<>> I am sharing some coaching and training tips + all my favorite progressions for the pistol! This movement is awesome for building strength, stability, and balance, mobility, and beyond throughout the ankle, achilles, feet, calves, hips, glutes, hamstrings, and beyond!
Set parallettes/boxes/benches shoulder width apart – about fingertip to shoulder distance apart so you can keep your eyes straight ahead without having to look down to grab the parallettes towards the bottom of your squat
Keep your arms and hands at your sides and the parallettes will be set directly under that
The lower the surface the more challenging
Use a set of parallettes to squat to while keeping your entire foot flat to the floor with your knee tracking your toes
You can also squat to a box or bench, if needed
Many more ways to scale, but these are some of my favorites and very simple ways to do so
