Hello and welcome to the Crossfit Pistol Workout.
Like the title already says, we are going to do a lot of pistols.
But first thing’s first – never skip your warm-up!
It’s just as important as your actual workout.
I could go on and keep rambling about the importance of warming up but I already did that in a different post.
If you have a little more time, give this extensive warm-up a try:

Reps as a Pyramid:
10 – 20 – 30 – 40 – 50 – 40 – 30 – 20 -10
How to approach it?
This is a long workout!
Make sure to start at a moderate pace because all those reps will accumulate quickly.
After you are over the “hump” and go down the “hill”, pick up the pace a little bit!
- Before you scale movements, scale down the reps – e.g. only go up to 30 reps and back down or 40 reps.
- If you cannot do pistols, go for lunges instead.
- If you cannot do all the push-ups, do them on your knees.
After a long workout like that make sure to have a proper cool-down to avoid injuries & give your body the time to recover:
