The ONLY Course You’ll Ever Need on Bodyweight Leg Training
Build Flexibility, Strength and Endurance by Mastering Bodyweight Squats, Pistols and Other One-Legged Squats
Ohhhh! I was inflexible. I tried to squat all the way down, but something was holding me back…my own muscles. Luckily, for me, that came quickly, but then I moved on to the next challenge.
In the beginning, I could manage a whopping total of 30 reps of bodyweight squats before my muscles were on fire forcing me to quit.
I made progress slowly but surely. Then came the next big challenge. The pistol is a name for the one-legged squat and it was well beyond me when I first attempted it. But with step-by-step progressions, I built the strength, stability and flexibility required.
From there I started to add reps…and weight…and more. My leg strength, flexibility and coordination just kept improving.
Then just a few years ago my eyes were opened to some new challenges like the shrimp squat and dragon pistol which I set out to master.
My Entire 15+ Year Journey of Bodyweight Leg Training Experience Distilled Down into 6 Roadmaps to Follow…
I won’t claim to be the greatest bodyweight squatter on the planet. But I’m pretty good! Over the years I’ve accomplished a good amount:
- 1000 bodyweight squats in a single set (taking slightly more than half an hour)
- Over 25 reps on each leg in the Pistol
- Pistols with an added 106 lbs. of weight
- The 4-Way One Legged Squat, which takes a large amount of flexibility
And that’s just some of the highlights. (See the video above if you want to see them in action!)
What’s more is that I’m good at TEACHING.
I’m skilled at systematizing information for real-world results. I’m skilled at breaking things down in a way that anyone can follow. That means you!
It’s all about going from A to Z. “A” is where you are at right now. And “Z” is where you want to go. The better you can plot a specific course, by understanding what it takes to go from A to Z, the better your results will be.
Would you set out on a road trip without a map or destination?
Or would you want GPS to guide you the whole way?
The Ultimate Guide to Bodyweight Squats and Pistols 2nd Edition is the GPS I’ve created to guide you towards six different possible bodyweight training goals. As such, this course is divided into six sections.
Module 1 – How to Gain a Full Range of Motion Squat
A natural human motion is to be able to squat all the way down, to sit on our own legs. Across the world, this is used as a rest position, where games are played, or meals are eaten while in a rock bottom squat. But in “Westernized” countries sitting on our butts all day long at school, work, in front of screens and in our vehicles, we lose this range of motion. Learn how to reverse that trend… (59-minute runtime)

An Investment in Your Training Knowledge, In Your Body and Your Health
Yes, you can find free videos about bodyweight squats on Youtube. So why should you invest in this course?
The answer is simple. The structure and the layout. It is a system…not some random tips and variations.
As I said before, this course contains my 15+ years of experience with bodyweight squats. There is a lot here…and I’ve separated tons of wheat from the chaff. I’ve eliminated what you don’t need, what would actually stand in your way to getting results.
Going from A to Z is about progression. Sadly, how you structure that progression is seldom taught in most places. But that is the what this course is about.
By investing here you’re saving yourself wasted time and effort.
The original version of The Ultimate Guide to Bodyweight Squats and Pistols was good. It helped plenty of people. But this new 2nd Edition is far better.
It’s more complete and more progressive than anything else out there. (In fact, I challenge anyone to show anything else that even comes close!)
At the beginning of this page, I state this was “The ONLY Course You’ll Ever Need on Bodyweight Leg Training.” That is true. This knowledge will keep you covered for a lifetime.
“I love it. At work tonight ( I now bartend), my friend was blown away by my pistol, which I learned from your book. Btw, it was SO smooth and controlled in the middle of a busy shift (and this guy actually has a planche, but his pistol was garbage). I just love your words and dedication. Thank you! But, for real, I’m almost 40 and somehow impressed a 20 something uber fit dude with a nasty planche because of your book. Think about that… Thank you!”
– Travis Brown
So you may pay a bit more today, but isn’t it worth it?
Understand that I currently charge $200/hour for my time. That’s what it would cost for you to do a coaching call or training session with me. And it’s probably going up in the near future.
It took me at least 50 hours to put together this course…not adding in the countless hours spent training, teaching students and experimenting that build up the knowledge base required. $200 x 50 hours comes out to $10000, but of course, you’re not paying anything close to that.
Even if you just look at the hours in the video course that would come out to $1200.
The Ultimate Guide to Bodyweight Squats and Pistols 2nd Edition is priced at $99.
Everything is downloadable to your computer or viewable online.
(If you like real books over ebooks like I do, you’ll find an inexpensive upgrade offer in the cart so you can get a copy of that too. But the videos are only available in online format.)
Bonus: The Ultimate Bodyweight Training Template
This all may be great for squats…but no one just does squats!
The appendix covers how to do any of the squats along with pushups/handstand pushup, inverted rows/pullups, and ab exercises for a full body weight training program.
Understand the progression in this template and how to put it together and you can use this for years to come!
Bonus: Bodyweight Basics and Progression
When it comes to strength and fitness, progression is the name of the game. Even though this is the MOST important element, few people give it the attention it deserves. In this short bonus video module, I lay out what you need to know about bodyweight training and how to progress with it.
Since it is not as simple as adding a little weight, you need to get a bit more creative. Understand these principles and you’ll be able to go far with bodyweight training.
100% Money Back Guarantee!
As with all my courses, this comes with a 90-day money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with it for any reason, let me know and I’ll refund every penny.
Order the course today. Start viewing the book and videos. Put it into action and you will get stronger and more flexible. But if for any reason you don’t, you risk nothing besides a small investment in time.
What Will You Do With Your New-Found Strength?
When you put these exercises into action you will get stronger. There is no doubt about it. When so few people can do a single pistol squat, you’ll be busting out several with ease. All you have to do is follow the game plans as they’re laid out.
This is the course I wish I had when I got started. But it didn’t exist, so I had to find all the answers through trial and error and from many other sources.
You have the luxury of getting it all in just one place.
Isn’t it time you used this ultimate exercise to achieve dramatic strength gains?
P.S. If you want to be strong, you need to do some form of squat training. Learning to master your bodyweight is a great way to go. So why not go deep and learn all you can about them? Don’t forget you’re backed by a 3-month guarantee. Get results or get your money back.
