Calories Burned:  221 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
Secondary Muscles Trained:  Quadriceps
Start: Stand on your right leg, your knee bent slightly. Raise your left foot slightly off the floor.

Movement: Without changing the bend in your right knee, bend at your hips and lower your torso until it is parallel to the floor. As you bend forward, raise your left arm straight out until it's in line with your torso, your palm facing down. Lift your left leg straight out behind you, pushing through your heel. Try to keep your shoulders and hips pointed to the ground. Place your left foot slowly on the ground behind you and stand up. Now shift your weight onto your left foot as your right foot goes into the air. Continue to alternate legs as you walk backward.

From the MH Experts: This exercise loosens your hamstrings.
