10 Progressions for One-Leg or Pistol Squat

Below are the progression standards for each exercise. What that means is, you cannot begin working on jackknife squats, until you are able to complete 3 sets of 50 shoulder stand squats. You must be able to do 3 sets of 40 jackknife squats before you can work on supported squats and so on. These progressions can take a long time, do not rush, do them correctly and your ability to move to the more advanced steps will be smooth. ? Dr. William Jones
