Brett,
Thanks again for your great blog and training insight...it is very inspiring and helpful!! I have a
quick question re: the pistol...

Have you ever had problems with your leg cramping up(on your straighten'd leg)while doing pistols?
I can't shake this problem...and it has gradually gotten worse. I feel like it must be an imbalance somewhere in my legs, hams or hips??
I don't have problems/ pain or tightness with other KB moves or ROM (that I am aware of..??) and as long as i stay away from pistols I am fine. What are some of your thoughts? Thanks a ton!!
Alan

Alan,
Yes I have experienced the cramping you are describing - and I hate to give you a non-answer but I would need to see your FMS tests and maybe some Z health drills in order to accurately assist you.
I actually let me knee bend slightly on the leg that is straight.
Let me know
