Coaching Tips: Hold the kettlebell / dumbbell however you would like to make the pistol happen (at the shoulder, out in front, etc.). If you can’t do a pistol, choose a box that allows you to sit and stand on one leg. You can vary the box height by using plates on a low box OR by putting the plate on the ground and then standing on it.
