Snatch & Pistol WOD
Doing squats with heavy weights may look and feel more impressive, but one legged strength is far more applicable to sports in which changes of direction and explosive action occur from one leg. The stabilizing muscles in the leg are much more active in controlling the movement of a lunge than a squat. Strengthening your stabilizing muscles will increase the grace and control of your movements on the ultimate field.
Enter the pistol. Here’s a good guide to progressions, and there are some nice links in the article to different coaches who make an art out of these movements. Tabata Times has a nice article on them too.
