PISTOLS & PRESSES

This post will display the progression of movements for the Pistol Squat and Press Up. All photos taken at BodyXpress Pure Gym @ Subang Avenue with trainer Luke Lango.

   1. Progression: Pistol Squat


a) Holding arms out for balance, extend one leg in front of the other. (Increase the challenge by placing both hands behind your head.)


b) Using the standing leg, gradually lower yourself into squat position.


c) Make sure your knees do not extend beyond your toes and keep to a 90 degree angle. Return to starting position.



   2. Progression: Press Up


1. Elevate body off the ground. Assume pushup position while keeping arms as close to torso as possible.


2. Gradually lower yourself to the ground while keeping body parallel.


3. Go as low as you can, or until your chest touches the floor. Return to starting position.
