The pistol exersize

Recently a guy posted a thread about this exersize and said it was the ultamate exersize.
NO DO NOT DO THIS EXERSIZE

Yes it looks good on payper but your knees can't take the pressure and sooner or later you are going to hurt your knees.
I was doing it untill I learned this. So I repeat

DO NOT DO THE PISTOL

If you dont know what it is here it is

theres nothing wrong with doing pistols there a great exercise you just didnt let your body adjust to doing a different exercise than usual.just take it slow throwing out a couple short sets a day while your working or whatever id recommend sets of 3-5 to start with

youguyes do what you want I am just giving you a fair warning your putting too much pressure on one knee unlike a squat. I know a guy that did it for years and he regrets it bucause he eventualy hurt his knee. Its not worth the risk.

So do what you want and be stubborn but dont be supprised when you hurt yourself.

i'm sure all of his knee problems were directly from doing pistols.

with squats you'd be using extra weight i'm assuming. with pistols its solely your body weight...should be fine on the knees.

Were you doing this exercise fast? I would think if you did it in a purpousful intentional maner it would be okay. Infact, instead of staying away from the pistol I am going to start doing them. The thing that jacked up my knee was doing jumping lunges with clapping at the top. I forget what it is called though. Supposed to help with cordination ofcourse doing it for two miles probably was not a good idea.
