Movement of the Week /// Progressions for the Pistol

Movement of the Week /// Progressions for the Pistol

This week on the <<>> BLOG <<>> I am sharing some coaching tips and training variations of the pistol! The pistol is an incredible way to build a ton of strength through stability and posterior chain… and beyond!
Coaching tips:
  • 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
  • Modify by: 
  • 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
