Let's watch our form today! Get our butts down and really challenge ourselves with that tricky edge of balance and discomfort. We will get so much MORE out of this workout by slowing down our Pistol Squats and really making every single rep as low, as safe, as tough as we can. We might tip over a little bit, we might need to hold onto something and we might need to do try several different ways. Let's pick the challenging option for our pistol squats that doesn't hurt our knees, compromise our safety, and hits our legs and glutes just where we need them too!


If we are consistently finishing our reps with 30 seconds, or more, left to go in our minute, let's look at how we can get make our pistols even better! Before we add reps, let's look at adding depth and challenging our balance first.
