The pistol squat is a perfect test for leg strength and not only that - It will help you develop that physical quality. This movement primarily targets the quadriceps and secondarily, the hamstrings and glutes.
- 1Stand on one foot and find your balance point
- 2Hold on to something if you do not have enough balance/strength
- 3Squat down, letting the opposite leg go forward
- 4Push back up through the middle portion & heel
- 6Once you are done with one side, do the same on the other
