🏋🏼♀️Pistol Squats were a feature in a lot of my PT sessions today. Let’s face it they are a bitch to perform at first & getting deep into full range of motion & having the #balance
to perform a solid concentric #movement
This being said the box pistol (see picture) is #perfect
👌🏻 as an intermediate tool for accomplishing a standard full ROM pistol.
👀 It's like a box squat, except progressive ROM is used to create #overload
instead of progressive resistance. 👉🏻In other words, you slowly lower the height of the box until you're doing rock-bottom pistols.
👉🏻Regardless, actually attempting to balance on one leg 🤸🏻♀️ is an enlightening drill & there is a pronounced difference between your L & R leg.
Unilateral #training #ifyouknowyouknow
(if you don’t, have a gander through my old posts) can minimise the disparity between them.
⚠️ The #weakness
can occur at the foot, ankle, knee, hip, or even in the torso & back, so use of a training partner - used this #morning
PT 😉, a mirror, or video which we utilised in tonight’s sessions can allow you to correct weaknesses & incorrect form. #practisemakesperfect
