9. Suspension trainer leg cross balance lunge
2 sets of 10 reps each leg
Here the pistol squat progresses, with the goal of swinging the straight leg through, bending the knee beneath you, and touching the knee just behind the heel of the planted foot, and with control, standing back up on the planted leg and swinging the off leg through and into the standing pistol, bending the planted leg into a pistol, standing, and then swinging the straight leg through again.
This exercise builds hip mobility, glute strength, and core stability, and Lafera adds, “if the pistol squat is all quad and hip flexors, then this is all glute and hamstring.”
