CAN YOU DO A PISTOL? DO YOU WANT TO?
Pistols are one of those boutique CrossFit movements. They don’t pop up a lot in our training, but they pop up enough that they are worth learning how to do. They are a great exercise to build single leg strength, mobility and balance. We always have one side of our body that is stronger than the other. If we can balance out the strength on both sides, then that will translate into greater combined strength when we use both sides together like in a squat. Do not underestimate the importance of the Pistol. Come in today and work on your Pistol.
