Pistol squats and rowing

Pistol squats are a good way of strength training without putting on extensive amounts of weights.

Xeno Müller explains how and why are pistol squats important for rowers. As he has always emphasized the importance of technique over strength, he says it’s a way to train with lighter weights, which do not put that much stress on the back. Additionally, he says that while doing a pistol squat, you can practice pushing with your heel – a very important issue for rowers.
