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!

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

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!
