Calories Burned:  408 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
Secondary Muscles Trained:  Deltoids
Instructions: 
Start: Hold a dumbbell in your right hand next to your shoulder, with your arm bent. Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart. Lift your chest up and pull your shoulders back. Brace your core and hold it that way for the entire exercise.

Movement: Step forward with your left foot and slowly lower your body until your front knee is bent at least 90 degrees. Keep your torso upright at all times. Pause, then push yourself to the starting position as quickly as you can. Complete the prescribed number of repitions on that side, then switch your arms and lunge with your right leg for the same number of reps.

From the MH Experts: Holding a weight on just one side of your body increases the demand placed on your core to keep your body stable.
