Overview

The singleleg squat (also known as the pistol squat) is an advanced bodyweight exercise that targets the glutes, quads, and hamstrings. It is a challenging exercise that requires a high level of balance and strength. To perform a singleleg squat, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes pointed forward. Hold a dumbbell in each hand at your sides. Step forward with your right leg and lower your body until your left knee is just above the ground. Keep your right knee over your right ankle and your torso upright. Push through your right heel to return to the starting position. Repeat on the opposite side. The singleleg squat is a great exercise for building strength and balance in your legs. It can also help to improve your flexibility and coordination.
