Exercise of the Week – Pistol squats

Stand on your right leg, with your left leg out in front and parallel to the floor. Hands are kept to your sides. You sit back down in performing a one legged squat. The range of motion depends on your mobility; if you can maintain adequate balance and form you could go deeper.
See to that you maintain adequate tightness in your abs to perform this challenging exercise.
Stand back up by maintaining proper form and balance.

Performance meter
Balance – this exercise requires balance and co-ordination from your end. It should be performed only intermediate to supplement your leg training.
This is a high risk exercise for a beginner and for someone suffering from a knee injury.
