Our personal trainer Angg Woo from Cheltenham, UK has put together some great exercise techniques for you to try. Practise these at home or at the gym and you will soon work your way up to a one legged pistol squat with ease!
Exercise 1 – Hold onto a suspention trainer, lift one leg off the ground and balance it at 90 degrees. Slowly squat down onto the opposite leg and pull yourself back up.
Exercise 2 – Sit up and down onto an exercise step with one leg constantly lifted off the ground.
Exercise 3 – Repeat step 2 whilst holding a small weight, this will help bring extra strength to the leg muscles.
Exercise 4 – Once you are confident with exercises 1 – 3, have a go at a full one legged pistol squat. Pull one leg out in front of you at 90 degrees (or as straight as you can, depending on your flexibility), and squat down on the opposite leg.
