Known for his boisterous comedic talents, Kevin Hart has become an unexpected source of workout inspiration as of late. The comedian regularly takes to Instagram to share different strength-training exercises, cardio workouts, and videos of himself clowning his personal trainer. In a video from Jan. 17, Kevin demonstrated a few arm workouts that are made more difficult with the surprising use of a towel!

At the start of the video, Kevin goes through a few reps of an upright row; however, instead of lifting the barbell directly, Kevin instead used two towels to harness the barbell and make the overall movement more intense. In a later moment, Kevin uses the same technique during a series of front barbell raises. The quick video also manages to include some great core exercises! Check it all out above.
