#41: Challenge of the week: Pistol Squads

I like to give myself a weekly challenge in order to stay motivated. There are 7 levels for every challenge, so everyone can join in. Feel free to modify the challenges so they fit your personal needs. Remember always to listen to your body, don’t push yourself too hard but keep moving. Doing only these challenges is not a balanced way to get or stay fit. If you have doubts about exercises, or your body, always ask a specialist for advice!

Pistol Squads
There you go. If you have done all the challenges the last year, by now, you must have seen your body changing, especially when you did combine them with other exercises and training, like you should. We have done squats, jumping squats and frog jumps. So let’s take it to a new level here. Let’s do pistol squats or one legged squats (Not if you have any issues in your lower body or back!). Let me know how these work out for you and what your experience is while doing them.

level 1: 70 reps
level 2: 140 reps
level 3: 210 reps
level 4: 280 reps
level 5: 350 reps
level 6: 700 reps
level 7: 1000 reps
