Overview

The kettlebell pistol squat is an exercise that targets the quads. To do this exercise, you will need a kettlebell and a sturdy surface to stand on. Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and the kettlebell in your left hand. With your right hand on your hip, hinge at your hips and lower your body until your left knee is bent 90 degrees and your right leg is extended behind you. Keep your core tight and your chest up throughout the movement. Drive through your left heel to return to the starting position. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions on each side. The kettlebell pistol squat is a challenging exercise, but it is an effective way to build strength and muscle in your quads.
