For those of you who think that pistol squats are the holy grail of fitness, you’ll be either discouraged or encouraged by this video, but regardless it’s entertaining.
Little kids are designed for movement. No shock there. Watch a toddler squat to pick up his toy, and you’ll see perfect technique: knees behind the toes, shins vertical, heels firmly on the ground, below parallel, etc. So when my daughter Abbie joined me on some pistols a couple of weeks ago, I thought it was awesome…until she showed me up.
It just goes to show that – if Abbie is any indicator – pistol squats are easy. Here she is doing her favorite exercise. Enjoy.
