Calories Burned:  442 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
Primary Muscles Trained:  Biceps Femoris (Hamstrings)
Secondary Muscles Trained:  Spinal Erectors
Instructions: 
Take a shoulder width grip on the barbell with your palms facing you and your feet about 4-6 inches apart with toes pointing forward at their natural angle.

Start with the barbell held along your upper thighs.

With your legs and arms straight throughout the movement, lower the barbell down along your legs until it touches your toes or until you feel a stretching sensation in your hamstrings.

Contracting the buttocks and hamstrings, pull the barbell along your legs back to the starting position.

Your lower and upper back should remain straight throughout the movement.

The entire motion should be performed in a smooth, controlled manner that lasts about 3 seconds, with the downward movement no faster than the upward.
