Kate Upton’s Sweet Fitness Secret: Watch Her Work Out While Eating a Doughnut

Well that’s one way to multi-task!

Kate Upton munches on a doughnut she’s holding in one hand while doing weighted sled rope pulls with her other in a workout video she posted to Instagram on Friday.

“Eating a donut while working out,” she captioned the video. “I’m playing for the tie #donuts #balance.”

Even though the model, 23, makes her workout look effortless, her trainer Ben Bruno told PEOPLE earlier this month that “Kate trains very hard. Her workouts are not for the faint of heart! She really works at it, and she’s super motivated.”

In addition to sled rope push and pulls for conditioning, Upton does circuit-based strength-training exercises during her intense workouts, which include moves such as weighted hip-thrusts, TRX rows, single-leg Romanian deadlifts and body saws.

And while Bruno said that Upton is “very disciplined with her diet,” she’s obviously not above the occasional sweet treat. A diet and workout plan that includes doughnuts? Now that’s something we can get behind!

Although my wife and I don’t eat the doughnuts while we workout, we definitely indulge with them after. We follow IIFYM, so as long as it fits, we eat it!
