"Pistol" is one-legged squat with Kettlebell or dumbbell. Use 1½ pood Kettlebell or 55 pound dumbbell for pistols. Post time to comments.

Please review the below link for an excellent "Pistol" tutorial.  The description above is from CrossFit.com.  The "Pistol" is still a "pistol" when done with no additional weight from a kettlebell or dumbbell.  Obviously performing the pistol as prescribed above takes a higher degree of strength and skill.  The "pistol" is best performed while holding something like a GHD or squat rack with one hand if you have no experience doing it.

    Hey guys did this at home in 16:12.
    Scaled to no weight on the Pistols because it was m first time doing them. Although the balancing was hard I was able to do them without holding on to anything and with pretty decent form. See you monday.
