Calories Burned:  476 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
Primary Muscles Trained:  Thighs
Secondary Muscles Trained:  Quadriceps
Instructions: 
Hold the dumbbells at your sides with your arms straight.
 
With your feet apart and your toes pointing straight ahead, plant your right foot 2 ft. forward with your heel touching the ground. Your left heel should be off the ground and your right leg will be bent. This is your starting position.
 
Lower your body straight down until your left knee is about 3 inches from the ground, keeping the natural curve of your spine by tensing your abdominal and lower back muscles.
 
Reverse the movement and return to the starting position.
 
Repeat with opposite leg forward.
