I happens to us all the time. Just when you think you know all the movements, you find out you don’t know squat.
We could write sonnets about squats. They’re just so versatile, and there are innumerable ways to vary them. Today’s pick can be used for both flexibility purposes and strength, with either endless options for scaling, using barbells, kettlebells, dumbbells, or just plain ol’ bodyweight.
And if you’re working on the flexibility and stability for pistols, you should be adding these bad boys into your progressions, pronto!
Meet the Cossack Squat.
Great squats require ankle mobility, too! Combine your Cossack Squats with this ankle stretch and your lower body will thank you!
