Calories Burned:  357 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
Primary Muscles Trained:  Quadriceps
Secondary Muscles Trained:  Gluteus Maximus
Instructions: 
START: Grab a dumbbell with an overhand grip in your left hand, and hold it at arm's length in front of your thigh. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Brace your core.

MOVEMENT: Without changing the bend in your knees, bend at your hips and lower your torso until it is almost parallel to the floor. Lift your left leg off the ground at the same time. Your leg should stay in line with your body. As you lower the dumbbell, keep the weight as close to your body as possible. Pause, then raise your torso back to the starting position and bring your left foot back to the ground. Complete the prescribed number of repetitions with the same leg, then do the same number on your other leg, switching the weight to your right hand.
