A few ways to approach the pistol if you are still learning and progressing with the movement. If strength and balance is needed then you can go banded pistols or pistols to a box squat. Both are great options for building unilateral leg strength and balance and awareness. If strength and balance are there but perhaps mobility is a factor then elevating the heel and squatting on a metal weight plate could help. If all of those factors are there but you’re just not that great at doing pistols, I’ve found that holding your free leg by the toes helps with balance and stability especially as you fatigue. Try these options out before scaling down to regular squats for this workout. 

3 Sets
10 Reverse Lunges/Step Backs

(5 lunges per leg and the linge weight and squat weight do not have to be the same)
