One of the most challenging things aspects of the pistol is maintaining control at the bottom of the movement. – By stopping on a low, soft service (like a medicine ball), you can learn to generate the tension necessary to "pull" yourself off the ball. You can also reclaim a good position while stopped on the ball (hips underneath the shoulders as much as possible). – The goal here is not to simply tap the medicine ball and stand – this does not require the same level of motor control in deep hip flexion. – Try this drill as a warm-up. When you can comfortably stand from a full pause on a medicine ball, there's a good chance you'll be able to do pistols without support – #CrossFit #legionsc #pistol #coaching #mynameislegion
