5. Pistol Squats
This exercise is hard to master if you’re a beginner, so make sure you get a chair for extra help. Here’s how to perform a pistol squat:
- Stand straight on one leg, with the other leg parallel to the floor. You arms should also be parallel to the floor.
- Now slowly squat down on one leg. If it is too hard for you, then use a chair and squat until your butt touches it.
- Return to the standing position.
- Repeat for 20 seconds, then switch sides and perform the same movement with the opposite leg.
