This program is designed to help athletes get or improve their single leg squat- also known as pistols. Not only will you become better at your pistols this program will improve your hip strength, core, and quad strength.
While it is in fact designed to be accessory, training the muscles necessary to perform pistols for repetitions means we are training leg muscles repetitively. We are building the leg and core as a unit, so don’t be surprised if your hip flexors get sore. I spend some time specifically mentioning managing mobility and recovery, but it bears repeating- get on the lacrosse ball, floss your hips, roll them out, perform couch stretch and pigeon every day you are in the gym!
Get stronger legs.
Address instabilities and imbalances.
These exercises will transfer over into every lift that you perform in the gym.
