Dad's Workout Plan Shows How To Get Buff And Hang Out With Your Kids At The Same Time

When you're a busy parent (aka any parent), it can be hard to find the time to exercise. But one brilliant dad has come up with some creative methods to work out and hang out with his kids at the same time.

Father-of-three John Bacha posted a video to YouTube called "Dad's exercise" -- a field guide for busy dads looking to carve out some much-needed fitness time. He starts with a typical bench press set ... lifting his young son and daughter instead of a barbell. Following a similar trend, he then does curls with his toddlers acting as the weights, and finally he works on his triceps, with one kid at a time.

As Bacha demonstrates, this routine is a great way for parents to work on those muscles while spending time with their chidlren. And as for the kids? Their non-stop giggling show how much they love being their dad's dumbbells.

Working out has never looked so adorable.
