pistol tips

Recommended Posts

Just found this tip. It looks like a great way to work on the mobility required for bodyweight pistols:


Start holding the bottom position for time. Use your hands at first by holding on to an upright support. Door knobs work well. Just try and balance as long as you can and minimize how much you use your hands. Slowly wean yourself away from using your hands until you can hold the bottom position for 60 sec. It helps to pre-stretch the hamstrings first. Do supported pistols for reps as well. Do fairly high rep sets to get the groove. In the begginning, use two hands. Then go to one, then two fingers then the index finger. By that time you should be able to do several reps unsupported. I have taught many people to do pistols this way.
