    That's cool, but I prefer looking like I actually lift so I will just squat like a normal person.

      let's say you're at the beach, far from a squat rack
      what do you do? if you can't pistol balance, this is a good substitute
      single leg squats are legit, unless you weight nothing

        Presumably swim, oogle prostitutes, or play some kind of sport. Why would I want to be on a beach doing squats?

            Anon, no contrived situation is going to make me think calisthenics are worth a shit if you're actually trying to be strong. I tried it for years. Just lift and the weights and stop being a pussy.

              I take rings with me when I go travelling. It means I can go to a park in whatever beautiful town I’m in and get a decent enough work out

        It does not. Strength isn't what you're lacking in a pistol squat. You can sit on your couch, chair or low bow and get up easily with one leg. It's balance and ankle dorsiflexion that are the limiting factors. You have to develop those independently.

          I actively try not to put any weight into my hands tho (while holding the rings)
          I think it might help with the balance issue
          if you're right, then it's broomstick season I guess

            If you want to do it without grips eventually you'd want to progress to doing pistol squats on a box. Just sitting and standing using one leg. Then you remove the box. The box let's you learn some stability near the bottom of the rep but let's you get closer to mechanical failure which is better for building muscle than sub optimal sets. Eventually you just remove the box.

      it doesn’t help your balance
      but the main problem is that you don’t have the needed strength and flexibility and movement isn’t in your cns enough when you start out plus the balancing part
      once you can easily rep out full rom pistolsquats for like 10-20with immaculate form with ring support you will be able to do it without
      the balancing part is not really hard
      it’s like standing on a single leg basically

    Pistol squats are a dumb exercise anyway. Imagine if your leg day was just leg extensions, that's what happens when calisthenics pals replace squats with pistols. You should be spamming reverse lunges instead, since it works everything.

      You're moronic. If you had ever done pistols you'd know that your glutes get even more sore than your quads when you do pistols.

      When i did semi weighted calisthenics, lower days were hell.
      4 sets of goblet squats
      4 sets of split squats or lunges
      4 sets of rdl
      4 sets of ring hamstring curls
      +
      4 sets of single leg calf raises
      5 sets of leg raises
      +
      5 sets of reverse hypers
      +: are super sets for time management

      I prefer to just go the gym and bang out 6 sets on the hack squat and do some rdls and maybe some hamstring isolations.

    It's a completely different movement when you lean back against the rings.

    • 2 months ago

      I don't actually lean against the rings, they sorta act as a last resort balance check
      mostly for maintaining stability, the full weight is on the legs
      at least that's how I do it, the rings are more of a placebo (kinda)

      They're harder since you don't have the support of the back leg, but you're also much more likely to be limited by your mobility than by your strength so they're much worse in that respect.

    Resistance bands allow you to do pistol squats without the strength part. Will require balance.
