6-week-long challenge of skill!


ApfelStrudi

Recommended Posts

Welcome back to another challenging mini-challenge! In our last challenge we had such a positive response to a 6 week long skill challenge that we decided to do it again! Only this time we’ll be focusing on something a little bit different; the pistol squat.

 

The pistol squat is an elusive beast and we’re going to do everything we can to help you guys get there. Every week we shall give you some exercises that will build a base to get to a proper pistol squat!

 

Now remember, these mini-challenges are an extra bit of fun to help you try something new and be even better! But we don’t want them to take over from your main focus and goals, but if you’ve already got something related to a pistol squat or that week’s mini-challenge in your goals then you can definitely count them both at once!

 

Last time we had the most wonderful Mad Hatter helping us out with our mini-challenge, this time we have the ferocious Phylanx! (Don’t worry, he won’t bite!)

 

So, everyone got that? If you do, awesome! If not, just post your question, or PM one of your GLs or Phylanx and we’ll be happy to help!

This thread can be used for general questions, progression pictures, suggestions and awesomeness! If you can answer questions, even though you're neither GL nor Phylanx, please feel free to do so. :)

 

We'll be posting the weekly mini-challenges with the actual progression and exercises, as well as the theme. Of course, this will be unraveled by our one and only Vengefulpear, master of the pen and paper - and soon to be master of the pistol squat!

 

Stay tuned for more awesomeness :)

Awesome challenge :D

 

I can do a grand total of one pistol squat on my right leg, so I'm hoping for at least one on the left leg by the end of this!

I shall follow along :) (although not yet an Assassin.) I've got split squats in my routine as an attempt to start getting towards pistol squat, so hopefully I'll make some progress.
