The Pistol Squat

This such a fun exercise to do, and it’s quite challenging.   I really think it would be an excellent exercise for runners who suffer from weak hips, imbalance of the leg/hip muscles, and ITBS.  In general, everyone can benefit from the pistol squat.   Start slow with this exercise, start by squatting into a weight bench, or a chair.  Just like barefoot running, the pistol squat is all about technique.
