Babies = Barbells.

Now, at some point, if you’ve reared a child or two, you must have wondered about the health benefits of toting your baby around. If you were so inclined, you may even have thought to yourself, “Well, I’m certainly strengthening my arms carrying this baby of mine around!”

But I’m fairly certain you’d never made the mental leap to thinking of your newborn bundle of joy as an actual strength training implement.

Mums use kids as exercise tools.

An ingenious idea, to be certain. And what better way to help the mother-child bond than to exercise with the baby? (Ha ha ha – sorry, bad pun.)

I would imagine that “going to failure” on any given set would not be a viable option.

All in all, I’d much rather see this fitness trend on our shores than those damn vibrating machines.
