New to the pistol? There are many ways to learn this movement and the balance, coordination and agility required all while building up the leg strength. These vary from the rolling pistol to the pistol onto a box, pistol with a band support, holding a plate for balance, or pistol on an elevated surface. Practice them all, watch the videos below and focus on technique through range of motion, no matter how limited. Your glutes will hate you tomorrow and the day after.
