Pistol work – 10 minutes

There are a few ways you can work the Pistol Prgression if you haven’t done them before.  SOme folks like to start from top position down.  Today, we’d like you to try working from the bottom of a squat and going up…


-start by sitting at the bottom of an air squat with feet and

knees together.

-once you are comfortable in this position and can keep their balance,  bring one leg out to resemble a one-legged L sit

-when that leg tires,  switch legs.

-when you are comfortable performing the L-Sit on either leg,

try to alternate legs without using an external object for support

-then start  attempting a pistol from the bottom of the squat

-if you can stand up, practice returning to the seated position.

-repeat with other leg.


3 Rounds for Time:

8 Front Squats (165/115)

8 Push Press (165/115)

8 Alternating Pistols
