If you go looking for ghosts you will find them. A prominent therapist stated this pistol squat was dysfunctional because of "compensatory lumbar flexion due to insufficient posterior capsule hip mobility." An athlete with TRUE hip capsule insufficiency would NEVER be able to squat that deep in the first place. The deeper you squat the closer the thigh comes to the torso & reduces sagittal lumbosacral flexion. Sure there are a few coaching points here put overall its a pretty damn good pistol squat that does not require remedial work.
