I haven't posted this workout as yet, but I did some weighted Pistol Squats on Sunday.
For the last year and a half I have been doing Pistol Squats for reps. But, I've never branched into doing them for weight.
So on Sunday, I decided to venture into unfamiliar waters.
I've never done weighted Pistols so I decided to stick to sets of 3 reps and over.
+20 lbs x 3 reps x 2 sets «— mostly a warm-up because this is what I use anyway
+30 lbs x 3 reps
+40 lbs x 3 reps
+50 lbs x 3 reps x 2 sets «— you could call these the "work sets"
+40 lbs x 4 reps
My question here is: how do you add weight? Holding Dumbbells is a real pain…I have terribly weak shoulders due to my dislocations so holding 50 lbs out in front of me is damn difficult. So to improve my capability of handling more weight (because +50 lbs wasn't all that difficult for me), should I do static Front Raises or something?
Here's my video which I will add to my log later:
Any suggestions on this would be very helpful.
