GO Green Fit: Alternating Pistols

For this exercise video, we see demonstrations of alternating pistols combined with some plyometric exercises. Together these exercises target your legs, which is why our go-to trainer also throws muscle-ups into the mix. The entire workout routine starts with 5 muscle-ups. From there we move on to 10 alternating pistols and 15 box jump overs. The trainer does 5 rounds of this in 11 minutes and 49 seconds.

Alternating pistols are similar to squats when looking at the overall movement, but they’re performed on one leg, and because of this, require a lot more balance. But just like squats you will need to have strength in your thighs and glutes to lift your body weight up for each rep. Because balance is a crucial aspect of alternating pistols, your focus will also have to be on its A-game as well.

Do you think you could be the trainer’s time for this routine? Do you do alternating pistols at the gym or at home? Let us know in the comments below, or by tweeting us @underwearexpert.
