The “One Leg Stand Up” is a quick, simple exercise that I started doing to improve my leg strength and stability while working up to a pistol squat.

If you are not yet ready for pistol squats, work on this move, and you’ll be much closer.

Step 1: You will start standing up. To start the exercise, squat down and roll onto your back with your feet in the air.

Step 2: Then roll back up (i.e. forward,) but stand up on one leg only. Your other leg can be bent or straight, as long as it isn’t touching the floor.

Then repeat the process, but stand up on your other leg.
