Pistol Squats: Transitioning
Training the Transition of Pistol Squats:
In this video, Coach Carl incorporates a couple more tools for the Pistol progression to help train the transition. By using a box to touch at the bottom, similar to box-squatting this provides the athelete with a big and steady base of support as their cue on the bottom. Additionally, holding a weight plate in front helps activate and engage the posterior chain to allow the athlete to properly sit back into the squat rather than lurch forward.
