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: 
Hold two dumbbells with your palms facing you and your feet about 4-6 inches apart; your toes should be pointing forward at their natural angle.

Start with the dumbbells held along your upper thighs.

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

Contracting the buttocks and hamstrings, pull the dumbbells 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.
