Try this simple progression to work on one of my favorite bodyweight moves – alternating pistol roll ups!
Before we can do a complex, dynamic balancing move like the pistols, or add weight it’s a good idea to work up to it.
I’ve listed the moves I’ll demonstrate in the video just below the video itself. Let me know if you have any questions!
All of these moves are awesome bodyweight moves in themselves, so try adding any of them to your next circuit!
Leave me a comment below if you’re taking the challenge to try learning this!
1. Roll back to stand – use your hands for balance.
2. Roll back to stand – no hands.
3. Roll back to jump
4. Roll back to stand on one leg – use your hands to balance. Work on your left leg first, then switch to work on your right leg.
5. Final Goal: Roll back to stand up on one leg – alternate legs each time, don’t use your hands.
My next goal: Roll back to stand up on one leg and jump!
