Type: 
Equipment: 

The pistol squat is an advanced lower body exercise that also engages the core. This one-legged movement requires a significant amount of strength, flexibility, and balance. In order to do a pistol squat, practice one-legged squats and bench squats to build up single leg strength. You'll also need enough mobility to lower your glutes down to your ankle.
