The Battle Ring Assisted Pistol is a great way to ease yourself into the Pistol exercise. It gives you some support while still putting the brunt of the work on your leg. Make sure you tie the other end of the strap to a sturdy support piece. Use it as much as you need and slowly wean yourself off the support rings. An excellent exercise for strong and resilient legs.

Exercise Steps

Step 1:  Set up the Battle Rings on something sturdy. Stand with your feet together about 4-5 feet from your anchor point.

Step 2: Lower yourself slowly as low as possible on one leg until you are almost touching the ground with your butt. Seek to keep your shoulders back, chest up, and your opposite leg as straight as possible.

Step 3: Pulling as minimally as possible, raise yourself back to standing keeping the non-working leg straight the entire time.

Tips & Safety: Maintain core tension throughout the entire exercise. Make sure all toes are planted on the working leg and squeeze the rings as tightly as possible.
