Calories Burned:  306 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
Primary Muscles Trained:  Gluteus Maximus
Secondary Muscles Trained:  Quadriceps
Start: Grab a Bosu balance trainer, Airex pad, or even a sofa cushion—anything that will stay in place while providing an unstable surface. Stand on the Bosu on one foot (barefoot is best) and raise the other leg.

Now push your hips back a few inches—just enough to bend the knee of your supporting leg. Hold for 15 seconds, and repeat with your other leg. That's 1 repetition.
