- Loop a large loop band around an anchor point above you.
- Place one leg through the loop and extend your other leg in front of you. Try to keep your extended leg as straight as possible.
- Hold onto the band and then lower yourself into a low pistol squat, only going down as low as you feel comfortable.
- While pushing through your heel, push yourself back up to the start position and repeat. Remember to try and keep your knee in line with your ankle.
*If you have any issues with your knees, this is probably not the exercise for you, so just stick to two-legged squats until you can develop appropriate knee stability.
**We prefer using the smith machine or a low chin-up bar as our anchor point. Also, if your hamstrings are tight you’ll notice that you’ll have a slight bend in your knee which is okay.
