I have never managed to do a pistol squat, but then I have never had a concerted effort to do so! I think that I looks like a fantastic exercise to be able to do with many advantages to cyclists so want to be able to work on these over 2019.
I don’t think that my main issue is strength related to lift my body weight on one leg (only based on being able to lift over my body weight in front squats) so it could be flexibility, strength required to hold form during the exercise, not believing in myself or more.
Do any of you guys who can do pistol squats:
- See any cycling benefits in being able to do them?
- have a progression plan to be able to do them over the course of a few months/ year that worked for you?
