Pistol squat

This squat is great for working your glutes but it is important to remember beforehand that the pistol squat requires great balance, leg strength, flexibility and coordination.

Step 1. Stand up straight with your feet apart and look straight ahead.

Step 2. Take one foot off the floor and straighten your leg out in front of you. Begin to bend your opposite knee.

Step 3. Continue bending your knee to bring your down into a one-legged squat. Keep your bottom low and your chest lifted. Take hold of your extended leg as you lower into your squat and keep your foot off the floor at all times.
