Instructions: How To

Combining the TRX with a BOSU Balance Trainer, TRX Pistol Squats focus on unilateral lower body strength, balance, and flexibility. This advanced variation challenges the quads, glutes, and core, offering a unique balance component that enhances proprioception and stability.

  1. Stand on one foot on top of the Balance Trainer dome, holding the suspension trainer handles in front and lifting the knee of the opposite leg.
  2. Slowly flex the knee of the weighted leg into a single leg squat while simultaneously extending the lifted leg in front.
  3. Pull gently on the suspension trainer handle and press the leg back up to standing position.
  4. Perform the desired number of reps on one side, then repeat on the other side.
  5. Maintain good, upright posture and a braced core throughout the exercise.
