Recently, we shared a video of a dedicated mum doing squats while bathing her little ones, and Anna Strode has just given us a fresh inspiration boost.
The Australian mum and fitness fanatic has made waves on Instagram with her instructional fitness posts – using her adorable twin sons as weights!
Anna can regularly be seen doing ‘weight’ lifts and squats using eight-month-old Lachie and Samuel, on her Instagram account ‘Bubs2Bikinis’.
Working out in our new garden ~ this is heaven. Can you hear those cheeky little giggles? I find when Lachie and Samuel are unsettled from teething the best thing is to distract them and cheer them up is getting out in the fresh air for a play! These exercises look quite simple but they are actually really working my full body with the added weight of my cheeky monkeys. I love how this workout is good for me and good for Lachie and Samuel too! #igfitmoms #igfittest @fitgirlvideos
As well as doing lunges while holding and bouncing her gorgeous little tots, Anna can also be spotted making the most of bath-time by getting in some arm- and leg-flexing!
As you can imagine, Anna’s mode of incorporating her motherly duties with her fitness regime has come in for major praise online.
Just one of her 24K-strong Instagram following recently commented: “You are amazing, I love seeing your workouts! And I just think it’s so wonderful how you incorporate your two little munchkins! It’s great for them to be a part of it, and you don’t have the guilt of leaving somewhere to go to the gym.”
We’ll certainly be borrowing a trick or two from Anna!
