5-Move Legs and Booty Pulse


Get ready to rock your lower body and join Coach Neesha for this fun workout you can do with just some dumbbells or weighted objects!

Coach Neesha is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and a Team Betty Rocker Coach.


Wondering if you can do this workout as a beginner? If you’re new to strength training, getting back in shape after recovering from an injury or setback, this workout (and all of my challenges in Rock Your Life) has guidance on your form and modifications for easing into certain moves, so you can get going no matter where you are starting from.


This workout will strengthen your legs and booty while increasing your cardio endurance. It’s short, powerful and a great way to raise your energy!

Strengthening your muscle tissue is one of the single most important things you can do to support your longevity (1). It boosts your immune system, increases your fat burning potential, supports your joints, and can even improve your sleep.

Building your bone density, deliberately strengthening the muscles that surround and support your joints, and challenging yourself in this way will go a long way to keeping you strong, active and healthy for many years to come.

Now, join Coach Neesha for this strong lower body burn!

Legs and Booty Pulse

Click to expand and see all workout move descriptions

Equipment: knee-high elevated surface, small stool, weighted objects, chair or a wall
Format: Perform the circuit 3 times within suggested rep ranges.

Circuit:

Elevated Bridge Lift Pulse (6-8)

  • Begin on your back with your knees bent and your heels on an exercise ball or low elevated surface.
  • Keeping your core braced, press through your heels to lift your hips up and engage your glutes.
  • Pause here to pulse your thrusts three times at the top of the exercise.
  • Lower your hips back down toward the floor with control and repeat.
  • MOD: Perform bridge lifts with your feet on the floor.

Sumo Squat Pulse (6-10)

  • Begin by standing with your feet wider than hip distance, allowing your feet to turn out naturally, holding a weighted object in each hand..
  • Brace your core and send your hips back, keeping your chest up tall (don’t bend forward), weight back in your heels and knees tracking in line with your toes.
  • Drive through your heels to slightly straighten your legs and bend them again, pulsing in your sumo squat.
  • Drive through your heels, squeezing your glutes to power back to standing.
  • Repeat for your max reps.
  • MOD: Use an elevated surface behind you as you squat to guide your squat form.

Single Leg Split Squat Pulse (8-12 each side)

  • Begin standing, a weighted object in each hand and with one foot on an elevated surface behind you, your feet hip width distance and spaced far apart enough for a good lunge position.
  • Find your optimal foot positioning by sitting on the edge of your elevated surface so that the edge is right where your butt meets your thigh. Extend the working leg out straight; wherever your foot lands is where you should place it during this split squat.
  • Lower yourself down with control by bending your knees to the depth that is comfortable for you (ensure that your front knee isn’t buckling in or bowing out).
  • Straighten through the knee slightly and bend again a couple of times, pulsing in your split squat.
  • Drive through your front heel to come to standing
  • Repeat for your max reps and switch sides.
  • MOD: Perform this exercise body weight only, placing your hand against a wall for balance, or performing regular forward lunges on your mat

Conventional Deadlift (6-10)

  • Begin standing with your feet hip distance apart, core braced.
  • Push your hips back and hinge forward, bending your knees. If you’re using dumbbells, you’ll keep them in close to your shins (at mid-shin) and lift your chest, straightening your back and dropping your hips down. If you’re using a barbell this is where you’ll grip the bar and lift your chest, dropping your hips slightly, and engaging between your shoulders.
  • Drive through your entire foot as you straighten your legs (imagine you’re pushing the earth away from you), keeping your weight moving in a straight line close to your body.
  • Feel your glutes and hamstrings working through this lift, and do not lean back at the top.
  • MOD: Remove the weighted objects and do this move with just your bodyweight.

Lateral Leg Raise Pulse(8-12)

  • Begin standing upright with a braced core.
  • Maintaining square hips, laterally raise your right leg, lower and lift it slightly a couple of times in a pulse, then lower it back down to the mat with control.
  • Repeat on the same side for your max reps..
  • For the next round, switch sides, raising the left leg. Continue alternating sides with each round.
  • MOD: Hold on to the back of a chair or with your hand on a wall to assist with balance throughout this sequence.
