Tip # 2 for Better Pistols

In our first video I went over the importance of starting the pistol from the ground up and learning how to properly set your feet to activate all the leg muscles. In this video I go over Tip # 2 for better pistols!

Thanks Franz, You 1st video on pistols was AWESOME, very helpful. Can't wait to try it with your recommended breathing on the way up. You're an excellent instructor! Thanks again.

Thanks again for these Pistol tips Franz. They've really helped to correct some stability and tension issues I've been having, and are getting me closer to the bodyweight pistols. Cheers!

Franz,

With your two tips, I:
* was able to get a pistol on my right, and I was able to come up on my left.
* more important help found an asymmetry in my left foot that is hurting my balance in bowling. It isn't natural flat and it pronates(?) out to the pinky side. I think that if I fix this asymetry I will:
- get better at pistols
- get better at bowling
- potentially fix something that my indirectly cause me back, shoulder, and potentially knee problems in the future.

My plan is to do some exercises that:
* work the muscles that supinate the foot
* stretch the muscle that pronate the foot
==> While I know there is a asymetry, I don't know whether it is due to weakness/inactivity or tightness.

Thanks again, Faizal S. Enu, RKC
