If you’ve been on the fence about whether or not to have a baby, the newest workout fad might be just the thing to knock your ass over to the reproducing side of the fence. Forget all about buying expensive dumbbells and pesky resistance bands. There will be no more whoring around a stripper pole pretending you “just wanna dance." All you have to do is have a baby, wait until its neck can support its giant baby head, and BOOM: you’re on your way to weight loss, baby liftin’ style.
It’s pretty self-explanatory: the baby (tot, child, fruit of your loins, etc.) is the weight, and you hold it while working out. If interested, you can read about the specific baby-related workouts in this NY Daily News article.
Now, I could go on a rant about what I think about moms using their bebes as a butt-crunching, muscle-building device. I could build my case on whether I think it’s “cool” or “not cool” to do so. Instead, I think I’ll just let the actual baby quotes from the personal baby interviews I’ve conducted speak for themselves:*
